   Kearney Public Library and UNK - History Department welcome you to the History Brown Bag lunch series Wednesday , August 10 from noon - 1:00 pm . Lina Homberger Cordia will present
   Invisible Futboleras:  Gender , Nationalism , and Sport in Mexico and the World in the Early 1970s .  
   In 1970 , the Mexican national women’s soccer
    
   team quietly made history as the only “Third World” participants in an inaugural women’s World Cup competition in Italy . The following year , in 1971 , Mexico became the first Global South nation to host a women’s World Cup , underlining the significance of the region’s sporting development and its use of sport in constructing a gendered nationalism . Touting their team of female finalists , Mexican statesmen used the spectacle of a women’s World Cup to project an image of itself on the world stage as a symbol of progress and modernity . These sporting events , though “unofficial , ” highlight the inherently political
   andgendered nature of Cold War international sporting events and are at the center of a history that places Mexico on a global field . Overall , Mexico serves as an exemplar of Latin American and Third World representation during the Cold War , where political rivalries between the First , Second , and Third worlds played out through sport .  
   Lina Homberger Cordia is a Ph . D . candidate in the Department of History at the University of Nebraska Lincoln . She graduated from UNK with a Master of Arts in History in 2017 , and her work has been published in the
   Oregon Historical Quarterly
    . Her current research takes an interdisciplinary approach to twentieth - century Mexican history , the history of the global Cold War , and women and gender in sport .
   This program is free and open to the public so bring your lunch and learn! This collaborative program is presented by UNK - History Department , and the Kearney Public Library . Mark your calendars for this ongoing series on September 14 with a presentation by Dr . Nathan Tye .
