Conference Invitation


The Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, is honoured to organize the 14th European Association for Sociology of Sport (eass) Conference, with the theme “The Values of Sport: between tradition and (post)modernity”. We are very pleased to invite you to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and the site of the oldest university in Central Europe (established in 1348). We hope that the conference will offer participants both an interesting scientific programme and an opportunity to visit Prague, well known as a picturesque, safe and easily accessible city in the centre of Europe.

The main goal of the conference is to bring together the community of scholars and other specialists to discuss key issues and present current research results in sport sociology and related areas. For many participants, the tradition of organizing eass conferences means an opportunity to renew acquaintances and collaborations, whilst for the new generation it brings an occasion to join the community of sport sociologists. The conference will provide opportunities to develop contacts for research projects and other academic cooperation.
