This week I began teaching “Soccer Politics” here at Duke University for the third time. This blog will host the writings of students in the course in four different languages: English, French, German and Spanish.
On the first day of class we analyzed three bits of the visual archive of the sport. First, a clip from the brilliant film Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait.
And finally, a return — slightly traumatizing for U.S. fans, joyful for Belgium fans (I’m part both) — to what I think were some of the most thrilling moments of the 2014 World Cup. I wrote about this game hereSoccer Politics Syllabus for Blog 2015.
