Sports do not exist in a vacuum. In America, arguably more than in any other society, sports have reflected our values and our times, and quite often, have actually served as the catalyst for sweeping changes — witness Jackie Robinson. As a result, the messengers of this medium — in this case, the sportswriters and broadcasters — have taken on a vital role. “The Rise and Fall of the American Sportswriter” will examine five phases to explain the vital role sportswriters played in the crucial early years of American sport, and how that role has grown and changed, right up to the present day. You do not need to be interested in sportswriting or even sports to succeed in this course. You need only care about American culture and good story telling, and be willing to meet a very high level of professional conduct.
