Sport Cultures in the United States

Course Description                                                                   

 

Sport has long been configured by local, national, and international cultural processes.  This course explores the intersections of sport and culture across race, region, urban space, and political boundaries.  It draws on a range of sources to consider how sports shape society.

 

This is a workshop course. For each class, students will write a 500-word analysis of a current problem in American society drawing on historical precedent as discussed in three scholarly articles. The exercise, then, will be to consider a current problem in historical context – how did we get here from there.

 

The instructor will read, comment, and return each assignment before the class concerned. Clean copies of each assignment will be distributed to all students. Class exercises will focus on workshopping each student analysis for historical content, research, analysis, and writing effectiveness.

Attendance is mandatory.
