Subtitle and Description Summer 2016:
Anthropology of Sports - This course explores the significance of sports in modern society. While sport is often touted as being above or outside politics it has historically been a vehicle for nation building and ideology. Through ethnographic readings and discourse analysis we will address emergent anthropological theories of power, violence, and patterns of domination through the lens of sports.
