AMS 255 Sports in American Culture

This course will explore issues of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and politics in American sports. We will examine not just the first athletes to break through barriers, but also the climate in which they were expected to perform and how their actions contributed to social change. Using a multidisciplinary approach, students will explore why sports have had such and impact in the United States. [H, SS]
