This years conference season is almost over and that is a good reason to report what we have contributed.

The season started early in April with a participation in the ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops in Mons. Regina participated in the Workshop The Discursive Construction and Usage of ‘Europe’ and the EU in European and Domestic Policies and contributed a paper on discourses of English football fans. Alexander and Arne presented first results from the comparative discourse analysis at the Sports&EU conference in Malta in June, and Regina presented a paper on discoursive constructions of Europe among Manchester United fans at the 1st Biannual Conference of the ECPR Standing Group on Citizenship at the University of Portsmouth.

In early autumn we were honoured to participate in the UACES 49th Annual Conference, Lisbon: 1-4 September 2019. We contributed to the Panel “European Sport in Times of Brexit: Identity Formation, Intercultural Dialogue and Europeanisation of Governance Structures”. Last but not least, we partipated in the ECPR General Conference 2019 in Wroclaw with a paper on social identifications among football fans in several European contries.
