In this seminar, probe the ways that societal and economic trends are driving changes in the organization and practice of sports around the world. Explore how the practice of sport emerged in Victorian England and evolved rapidly during the 20th century, becoming deeply enmeshed in the global cultural landscape. Think about the future of sports by studying and debating the key issues facing sports and sports organizations today, including gender and sports, college sports, athlete rights, drug testing in sports, the challenge of staging global games, the role of the media, and emerging sports and leagues. See how sports intersect with business, law, and media, while learning from industry experts about their careers and business strategy, negotiations, deal-making, and contract drafting.
