Sport has proven an increasingly important domain to examine the ever-evolving boundaries, flows, and politics of globalization (Miller et. al, 2001; Giulianotti & Robertson 2007; Joo 2012). The session opens a conversation about the globalization of the NFL. We are interested in critically examining the cultural, gendered, racial, and economic politics of a “Globalized NFL”. From its 1990s American Bowl series to its 2005-2016 re-imagination as NFL International, to the ongoing targeting of NFL London and NFL Mexico branded games, Globalized NFL proves formidable in the latest phase of globalization and sports. We seek contributors interested in examining histories, implications, flows, and politics of Globalized NFL from an array of theoretical orientations and intersectional lenses. Contributors are welcomed to draw from this year’s conference theme, “Sport Soundtrack: Sport, Music, and Culture” as it may pertain to Globalized NFL. Essays may be included in a potential book and/or special issue.
