Racism and Discrimination in the Sporting World
An interdisciplinary volume to be edited by:
Professor of French and Fulbright Scholar
Eileen M. Angelini, Ph.D.
What is it about culture and society that creates an environment in which an athlete is able to excel or fail in his/her respective sport? Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete's achievements? This volume seeks to explore how the world of sports is often a microcosm of the real world and the many ways in which it uniquely reflects cultural and societal issues. Abstracts are welcomed from all disciplines.
