As part of the OWRI Cross-Language Dynamics project, we have organised a workshop and discussion on the recent FIFA Football Championship in Russia and the impact it had on football culture within the country and it's media image worldwide.

This workshop is aimed to bring together journalists and academics specialising in football culture and international sports management, Russian studies and communication research and will open up a discussion on the changing roles of sport mega events in cultural awareness, transnational communication and international outreach as exemplified by the recent World Cup in Russia.

Please find the programme and abstracts of the talks here.
