CAS 4460 - Sports Discourse in Media and Culture

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): CAS 2400 or permission of in structor

Description: Sports talk has moved off the playing field and into day-to-day discourse in interpersonal, organizational and public communication. This course explores metaphors, mythology, idioms and ideas that emerge from the world of sports and how they impact discourse about gender, community, politics, identity, education, ethnicity, parenting, and organizational life. The role of broadcast media is critically examined for its role in encouraging a cultural dialogue of sports metaphors.
