IAST Encounters is a new series of occasional events, in which visitors from outside the academic world will come to IAST to engage in conversations with our researchers on interdisciplinary themes.
The first in this series took place on 12th November, when our guest will be Simon Kuper, a Financial Times columnist based in Paris.
|Son of the anthropologist Adam Kuper, Simon became known for writing about sport from an anthropological perspective. He has also collaborated with economists, notably Stefan Szymanski, to write about using statistics and econometrics to study football. His books include "Football Against the Enemy", "Ajax, the Dutch and War: Football in Europe during the Second World War", and "Soccernomics".|
