Dr. Daniel Haxall presents papers in Europe

Dr. Daniel Haxall, Associate Professor of Art History, presented two international lectures this past summer. Both presentations were part of ongoing research about how contemporary artists represent social and political issues through sporting references. First, Dr. Haxall presented, “‘England Till I Die’: Nationhood, Soccer and Contemporary Art,” at the Association for the Study of Sport and the European Union 11th Annual Conference at CEU San Pablo University in Madrid, Spain, June 27-28. Then, he presented, “Visualizing the Global Game: The Politics of Soccer in Contemporary Art,” at the symposium, “The Beautiful Game: the Poetics and Aesthetics of Soccer in Transnational Perspective,” hosted by the University of Basel in Basel, Switzerland, June 30-July 2.
