From campaign slogans found on the walls in the ruins of Pompeii to lapel pins worn at the inauguration of George Washington in 1789 to today’s t-shirts, “I Voted” stickers, and protest signs, politics and material culture have always been interlinked. In a January 2016 interview, President Barack Obama was asked to discuss an object that held personal meaning for him. He chose to bring several items given to him by supporters, among them a rosary, a small statue, and a metal poker chip. Obama described how looking at these objects and carrying them in his pocket reminds him of the people he has met along his career, their stories, and his responsibilities to them.

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. The papers should either favor a historicist approach or be grounded in disocurse analysis.

REMINDER: The Fine Art of Commenting on Books that Don’t Exist: A Borgesian Experiment

Borges once cheekily wrote, “Writing long books is a laborious and impoverishing act of foolishness…A better procedure is to pretend that those books already exist and to offer …a commentary.” Indeed authors as varied as Borges, Lovecraft, Dick, Apollinaire, Lew, and Asimov placed completely fictional books at the center of their own literary universes. That would make a fascinating panel, but that is not this panel. Rather, what this panel seeks are academic-style works of literary theory and criticism which take as their primary texts completely fictional novels, stories, movements, authors, and films.
