As part of its 380th anniversary celebrations in 2016, Utrecht University is treating residents of and visitors to the city of Utrecht to … a Culturele Zondag (Cultural Sunday)!
April 3, the university will be transforming the city centre of Utrecht into a huge lecture theatre with an extensive programme of mini-lectures, practicals and presentations on a wide range of disciplines.
Sport & Society, one of the research focus areas of Utrecht University, will contribute with a debate about the societal meaning of professional football clubs. Researcher Frank van Eekeren and FC Utrecht CEO Wilco van Schaik will cross swords. Main sponsor of FC Utrecht – Zorg van de Zaak – will also take part in the discussion.
Another contribution of Sport & Society will be the mini-lecture by Sofie van den Hombergh, titled: Is sitting the new smoking? (Dutch: Is zitten het nieuwe roken?)
