Hi everyone,

There is a call for chapters for an edited collection on women's football:

The History of Women’s football in Britain and Ireland between 1845 and 1990.

This year marks 100 years since the FA implemented its ban on women playing football on affiliated grounds, as well as 50 years since UEFA recognised the sport.

The focus of the collection is on Britain and Ireland but this could also include tours of teams or migration of players to other parts of the world and vice versa. 

Timeline

To submit a proposal for consideration, email the abstract (500 words) and a short bio by January, 2022 to all editors Fiona Skillen fiona.skillen@gcu.ac.uk Gary James gary.james@talktalk.net and Helena Byrne byrne.helenam@gmail.com

All the best,

Helena Byrne
