PERS 4340 - Sport, Film and Society
This seminar format course encourages students to use films as "texts" through which important sociocultural themes related to the study of sport, recreation, physical activity, dance, and physical education can be explored. It builds upon themes explored in courses such as PERS 3460 and uses film as a way to examine the intersections between the representations of key historical and sociological concepts, such as social class, gender, and race/ethnicity and the representations of sport and the moving body. The course is organized around these themes and includes a variety of film genres, primarily feature films and documentaries. Each seminar includes one or more screenings upon which class discussions are based. The course concludes with a screening of the films made by the students themselves, a key component of the course evaluation. Prerequisite: PERS 3460 or written permission of the instructor.
