SOCY 49.19 Sport and Democratization in the Ancient and Modern Worlds

The relationship between democratization in society and in sports forms the subject matter of this course.  We will begin to explore that relationship by looking at the various ways in which democratization in society and in sports influence each other in the modern world.  Then we will turn our attention to the past and examine the relationship between democratization in society and in sports in sixth- and fifth-century BCE Greece, in nineteenth-century CE Britain, and in twentieth-century CE America.  The course will end with a consideration of the lessons we have learned about democratization in society and in sports for public policy in the United States and elsewhere.
