This weekend, the Hofstra Cultural Center and the Hofstra University Department of History are honored to have legendary football player Edson Arantes do Nascimento, or better known as Pele, present his international conference titled "Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football's Artistry, Identity, and Politics." This is a conference that explores the historical, political, economic and humanitarian impact of soccer, which is perfect timing since everyone is in anticipation for the World Cup 2014! Also while Pele is on campus this weekend, Hofstra will award him with an honorary degree! This is going to be a truly inspiring event that you should not miss out on!
