Dr Paul Ian Campbell is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Leicester and an award winning researcher. His monograph, Football, Ethnicity and Community: The Life of an African-Caribbean Football Club won the British Sociological Association’s Philip Abrams Prize 2017 and was shortlisted for the British Society of Sports History Lord Aberdare Literary Prize the same year. Paul’s research interests are centred on the themes of race and ethnicity, leisure, and local and professional football.
Dr Max Mauro is Lecturer in the School of Business, Law and Communications at Solent University, UK, and visiting lecturer in Media, Sport and Communication at St. Mary’s University, Twickenham. Max has recently published Youth Sport, Migration and Culture where he explores the long-term sport practices of young males in Ireland. Engaging with the social changes in Irish society through the eyes of children of immigrants growing up in Ireland, Max looks closely at young people’s practices in multi-ethnic contexts and at issues of inclusion in relation to public discourses around national identity and immigration.
