The Politics of Sport

3 credits


Political Science
College of Arts and Science

The students participating in this class should expect to learn the ways in which sports and politics intersect; how sport is both the cause, and result, of political processes; how society’s attachment to teams are linked to our identities, both social and political; how sport defines us physically, reflects class, and reproduces shared history. This is primarily a political science course, and no prior knowledge of sport in general, or any sport in particular, is necessary.
