ADSA 8011 The History of Sport Fall/Spring 3
Course Description

Sport is one of the largest businesses in the contemporary world. In its various forms, sporting competitions stretch across the globe, and in addition to national variants and indigenous sports, also attract a global media and support base in the form of mega events and Olympic Games. The aim of this course is to understand how sport developed around the world. In doing so the course will not only explain how sport has become a global obsession that dominates the media, sponsorship and marketing rights and is the daily obsession of millions, but also assesses how ancient and nineteenth century ideals came to be enshrined in contemporary sport. After all, sport is not without meaning. There is the basic point of who won the game, but as a society we also ask how the game was played. On the one hand we are content to see elite players being paid of millions of dollars for throwing or kicking a ball, but also demand of them that they play the game the right way, that they adhere to a moral code centered on rules and that they are a good role model. Much of this meaning that is given to contemporary sport can therefore appear contradictory. Unless we understand the history of sport then we cannot understand the modern forms that various sports take.
