Brown Bag History Series

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

You are invited to the continuing "Brown Bag" series, hosted by the library, in partnership with the UNK History Department. Presenters will focus on a different historical topic in each session. This month, Lina Homberger Cordia, a Doctoral Candidate, will present "Invisible Futboleras: Gender, Nationalism, and Sport in Mexico and the World in the Early 1970s." Feel free to bring your lunch with you.

In the 1970s, the Mexican national women's soccer team made history as the only "Third World" participants in the first women's World Cup. In 1971, Mexico became the first Global South nation to host a women's World Cup. These sporting events, though "unofficial" highlight the inherently political and gendered nature of Cold War international sporting events and are at the center of a history that places Mexico on a global field. Mexico exemplifies Latin American and Third World representation during the Cold War, where political rivalries between the First, Second, and Third worlds played out through sport.
