David Goldblatt, author of the monumental The Ball is Round: A Global History of Football, brought in the largest crowd yet at the Football Scholars Forum. FSF convenor Alex Galarza reports the group had an excellent discussion on globalization, politics, class and capital in football’s history.
The FSF is an academic book club based in the History Department at Michigan State University. Its members have varied research interests related to the ‘beautiful game’. The group brings together authors, professors, graduate students, journalists and fans to discuss works on fútbol in a relaxed setting. Contact the Football Scholars Forum at email@example.com
