I convened a seminar
in NUI Galway to coincide with the visit of the Volvo Ocean Race to Galway in July 2012. This session brought together
videographers involved in the filming, uploading and broadcast of the race to
discuss their experiences and answer questions from students and the general
public. The event built on the success of the ‘Representing Sport: Europe,
Tradition and Modernity’ symposium which I co-convened in June 2009 during the previous
visit of the race to Galway.
