Contemporary global sport is a unique phenomenon that simultaneously expresses universal elements of human culture and particular, historically informed aspects of national identity and social values around gender, race, ethnicity, and contemporary social issues. This course takes students on a comparative journey across Argentina, France, Italy, and Spain, using sport as a lens through which to view differences and similarities in each country's history, politics, and culture, in addition to the overarching social concerns of each society. Students will use a range of materials and sources to engage fundamental questions about the role of sport in the human experience, as well as its politicization, commercialization, professionalization, and mass-mediation. Students will learn how to critically analyze sport as a means to address current events in the world through comparisons of sport in the four countries.

This course is taught in a virtual format by one of CEA's onsite instructors from across our 8 study center locations.
