ENGL 208 - Sports Literature

3 credits (3 lecture)
This course is a reading-intensive study of representative works that present and explore key cultural, social, political, aesthetic, and philosophical issues related to sports. This course operates on the premise that sports is an integral part of human culture and society. Given this premise, students will contextualize sports within this wider context, as well as clarify sports’ role in both reflecting and generating cultural and social change. Moreover, students will contribute their own insights to on-going conversations about sports and culture through writing and discussions.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 101, or permission of the instructor.
