I have now moved to the University of Virginia, where I taught Soccer Politics for the first time this Fall. We delighted in the fact that the World Cup actually happened during the class, and have been watching over the past weeks.
Students in the class developed projects focused on the Qatar World Cup, which you can find here (will be posting a few more as they come on line in the next days). Enjoy! Feel free to share responses and comments below if you’d like.
