ENG-235 - Sports Literature

3 credits

According to Olympian Mark Tewksbury, "[Sports] breaks down barriers and builds bridges." This course looks at the many ways sports can transcend culture, nationality, and religion as shown in a variety of literature formats - short stories, news, and journal articles, film, and more. Sports Literature will examine the literature conflicts that exist between players, the audience, the game, and most importantly the athlete. Thematic elements between selections will be compared.

Prerequisite(s): ENG-102 (minimum grade C-).
