EVENT: Football as a Reflection of American Culture
We'd like to invite you (and your students) to watch the next BagNews Salon: Unnecessary Roughness: Football as a Reflection of American Culture on Jan 27th, the Sunday before the Super Bowl. The webinar will focus on a broad range of themes, including power and violence, commercialism, patriotism, militarism and gender roles. As usual, the discussion will revolve around a 9 picture photo edit and also deal with media and visual framing.
Co-sponsored by The International Association for Communication and Sport (IACS), the Salon features 4 great sports scholars -- Mike Butterworth, Dan Grano, Marie Hardin and Tom Oates -- and two of the best photojournalists and sports shooters in the business: Ken Jarecke and Scott Strazzante. The vitals are below. We hope you can watch as well as participate via Twitter!
