Sport | Race | Racism | Postcolonialism
Pedro Sousa de Almeida holds a P.hD in “Democracy in the Twenty-first Century” by the University of Coimbra (2019), institution where he also took his degree in Anthropology (2001). He holds a Master´s degree in “Family and Social Systems” by Instituto Superior Miguel Torga (2004), where he was a teacher between 2002 and 2010. Currently Pedro integrates CRIA with a postdoctoral scholarship. From the idea that sport is a uniquely favourable field for studying social reality, his main research interests have centred on the relations between football, race, racism, postcolonialism and national identity. He has also published on football violence, as well on the relations between football and neoliberalism.
