1 March 2017 @ 0 h 00 min - 4 March 2017 @ 23 h 59 min
The Finnish Society for Sports History, The Finnish Society of Sport Sciences, The Department of History and Ethnology and the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences jointly organize the Ski Congress 2017 at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, 1st–4th of March, 2017.
We invite to the Congress researchers and scholars to discuss and analyze the international relations of skiing, its societal significance and impact on human physical and mental well-being. We want to touch upon the climatic moments and sore points which skiing has brought about.
We understand skiing as multi-faceted outdoor recreation which includes all traditional winter sports in skiing as well as ways to move and exercise on skis, including skiing tourism.
Registration to Ski Congress 2017 is open and closes the 10th of February 2017. Click here to access the registration page.
