ISG 2018: Bonus Class Materials #2

This week -- meetings 9 & 10 -- we continue a short unit on sport and social movements. Here is some material from the syllabus plus bonus material for the week ahead.

Our class is a part of the Inclusive Sport Summit taking place on campus this week (props to Medford Moorer for making it happen with CU Athletics and Recreation Services). Here is the schedule for the ISS on Wednesday and Thursday. Note that it is open to the general public.

The Thursday closing session will feature Solomon Wilcots (CU Buff, NFL, CBS and now Sky Sports) and Jim Trotter (ESPN, Sports Illustrated), along with Professor Nancy Lough (UNLV). NOTE that it will be in the Touchdown Club in Dal Ward.

On Tuesday, in addition to a scheduled quiz, we will have a final look at the Russian doping saga with a discussion of tonite's 60 Minutes episode featuring Grigory Rodchenkov.

We will also start a discussion of Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump and the NFL. I'll give a mini-lecture on propaganda.

Here are this week's readings:

Bonus material will be suggested in class.
