Sports History of Eastern Europe

The thematic dossier focuses on issues that deal with sports activity in its social, economic and political contexts.

In addition to regional approaches to the history of sports in Eastern Europe, the thematic dossier opens up topic-specific approaches for an in-depth study of central aspects of sport.

The thematic dossier is based on the Handbook of the History of Sport in Eastern Europe, edited by Anke Hilbrenner, Ekaterina Emeliantseva, Christian Koller, Manfred Zeller and Stefan Zwicker, which was published online as part of the OstDok project at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies Regensburg (IOS).

The contents are the result of the research network "Integration and Disintegration: On the Social and Cultural History of East European Sports in International Comparison". It was funded by the DFG between 2009 and 2016 and was based at the University of Bonn, Department of Eastern European History.
