For the sports fanatic, this course uses sports as a vehicle for developing deeper and more complicated understandings of American Culture. Using the cultural histories of football, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, among others, and in college and professional levels, we will explore issues such as the role of sports in the formation of individual, group, and even national, identities; how race, class, gender, and religion "play" in the arena of sports; and the value of sports as a frame of cultural analysis. Work will include discussing course readings, and conducting mini archival and field research in sports-related topics and sporting communities.
