My final presentations for my Masters Degree examinations. The first subject is on the role football (soccer) played in the build up of the Balkan Wars, and how it clicks into the subject of "identity" in the region.
The second subject is on different elements often overlooked in the study of violence in crowd sports, particularly in football. What triggers certain people to become violent before, during and after a match? Are there any social or political reasons behind the phenomenon? What makes hooliganism so prevalent in European and South American football, but a topic rarely discussed in American sports -NHL,NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS?
Lastly, a brief explanation of what was the main focus of my Master Thesis (which has been modified somewhat lately), on the subject of nationalism in German football.
