This course will examine the rise and fall of baseball as America's national pastime. We will trace the relationship between baseball and American society from the development of the game in the mid-nineteenth century to its enormous popularity in the first half of the twentieth century to its more recent problems and declining status in our culture. The focus will be on baseball as a professional sport, with more attention devoted to the early history of the game than to the recent era. Emphasis will be on using baseball as a historical lens through which we will analyze the development of American society rather than on the celebration of individuals or teams. Crucial elements of racialization, ethnicity, class, gender, nationalism, and masculinity will be in play, as we consider the Negro Leagues, women's leagues, internment-era baseball, the Latinization and globalization of the game, and more.
