Primary Instructor:

Sports are a seemingly universal feature of societies across the world. From soccer to cricket, from baseball to the Olympic Games, sports constitute connections across space and time. This course examines the reach of sports with attention to scale and theory. We’ll look at the following questions over the term: What can turning our attention to different contexts and different times tell us about the purpose and development of sports? How can sports shed light on constructions of gender, sexuality, and race? What are the links between sports and political power, social protest, and globalization? This course will approach the above through different problem-based modules, which will introduce students to the theoretical underpinnings of world history.

Class Format:

Lecture; discussion section.
