Date: 
Sunday, January 26, 2014 - 2:00pm

With the upcoming World Cup in Brazil as our focus, we'll explore a series of questions about international soccer.

What can we learn about a community or country through its soccer style?
Why is soccer so internationally popular, and why has it struggled in the United States?
What do the recent protests in Brazil mean for the country and for the future of international sporting events?
And — maybe most importantly — does the World Cup even matter?

This event is offered in partnership with Knowledge Commons DC.
