- Learning Outcomes
On completing the paper students will have:
- Gained an appreciation of the complexity of popular cultural forms, such as sport, in the construction and reproduction of important cultural values, meanings, experiences and identities. In turn, you are encouraged to develop your own personal "politics of the popular".
- Developed a critical understanding of contemporary cultural issues and problems within the sociology of sport.
- Developed a theoretically informed awareness of the ways in which identities and cultural practices are culturally constructed both within and outside of sport.
- Gained an understanding of the nature of intersecting identities, both locally and globally.
There is no compulsory textbook. A reading list will be provided, most of which are available via Blackboard or electronically through the Central Library.
