Con grande piacere comunichiamo la vittoria della nostra socia Lidia Lesnykh al premio CESH, con un saggio incentrato sulla nascita dell’ International University’s Sports Federation.
Queste le motivazioni, lette durante il Convegno di Lisbona.
” Lidia Lesnykh’s paper dealt with the foundation of a new international organisation, the International University’s Sports Federation, in 1949. This was a response to an earlier Soviet-dominated university organisation. It had a very solid international feel in a broader historiographical context of East-West post-war relations and the Cold War. It demonstrates the ways in which such student organisational members responded to broader geo-political approaches. There was a very impressive use of a wide range of European sources and the writer shows good scholarship and a strong potential for future work.”
Come Società Italiana di Storia dello Sport (SISS) ci congratuliamo con Lidia per il risultato e per l’importante contributo fornito alla storia dello sport.
