HRF 062 – France Culture of mourning in football – ENGLISH FOOTBALL

by: Adam Smith


… in conversation with Carmen

Grief in football, in fact so obvious and yet it is always a single topic for an occasion. Rarely the overview. Carmen, on the other hand, has found her own approach to this. Even the entry into the episode is very personal. As is so often the case in her life, she did not find her calling until later, saddle and now works as a funeral assistant. In addition, she launched the “Mourning and Football” project. She lectures on the subject, writes texts and recently has her own column in Zeitspiel magazine.

The cover of the episode is “marwi,” thanks for providing.
