CC 335 - Sports as Soft Power

Credits: 4
Examines sports as soft power (persuasion, influence, and attraction) in the attempt to bridge communities and cultures and on the local, national, and global stages. Case studies demonstrate the attraction and effectiveness of sports as a communication strategy utilized by local, national, and international governments and NGOs as part of a strategic communication plan, as well as its role in spontaneous grass roots movements. Critical to our studies is the appreciation that sport may challenge/reinforce social and cultural values at the local, national, and international levels. Complementing readings and discussions, the course includes guest lectures from individuals in the sports fields, thereby providing students a first-hand understanding of the challenges faced by those participating and working in this area.
