Sport & American Culture  

Does sport explain America? Is it possible to understand what Americans value and believe as a society by studying the history of sports in our nation? What American values, ideals, and myths might be reflected in sports? What has been the influence of sport on everyday life in the past? What makes for a "hero" in American sport? How has football become the nation's #1 sport? Is golf un-American? These and other questions and issues will be discussed in this interactive learning experience.
