Football in Museums: Interpreting the global game
The third annual symposium of the International Football Institute
Friday 21st September 2012
National Football Museum, Manchester.
The International Football Institute (IFI) at the University of Central Lancashire was re-launched in 2008 in research partnership with the National Football Museum. This is the 3rd Annual symposium. Previous symposia have been: 2011 – Sport and Fashion; 2010 – Football and Art.
The 2012 Symposium will appeal to all those with an interest in football in museums and those with a related interest in the heritage of football.
The event will enable delegates to hear about current best practice in interpreting football in museums. It will take a European perspective and address key areas including:
How can we best interpret football in both specialist football museums and the wider museums sector?
How can museums work in partnership with football clubs to preserve their history?
What are the alternatives to establishing a specialist football museum?
What does the future hold for football museums?
How can those engaged in football in museums work in partnership?
Delegates will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the new National Football Museum.
Speakers will include Kevin Moore, Director of the National Football Museum, Wray Vamplew, pioneering sports historian, and guest contributors from a range of football museums.
Costs are £25 per delegate. To book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a booking form.
