SOC327H1: Sociology of Sports


The sociology of sport seeks to critically examine common sense views about the role, function and meaning that sport has in different societies. By challenging ‘nature’ and taken-for-granted views about sport, sociologists seek to provide both a more social and scientific account of sports. This course will do so by exploring several topics including but not limited to learning about different perspectives on sports, sports and socialization, sports and media, the business of sports, the intersection between sports and inequality, sports and race, sports and gender and sexuality, sports and deviance, as well as sports and politics.
