Description

Detroit, known as "the capital of the 20th century," has long been the quintessential American city, exemplifying the glory and the agony of urban life. A magnet for immigrants from all over the world, decisively shaped by the Great Migration of Black Americans to the North, Detroit has also been a city of sports, hosting the Tigers, Pistons, Red Hawks, and Lions within a stone's throw of each other. In this seminar, we will look at pivotal moments in the city's sports history, linking them to broader Detroit developments. You will read about Joe Louis and the Ford Motor Company, Hank Greenberg and anti-semitism, the Malice in the Palace and American media patterns, and the city's long history of unsuccessfully bidding for the Summer Olympics Games.

Course Requirements:

Requirements: attendance at lectures, regular homework assignments, a diary, active participation in discussion sections, final 8pp paper.
