Learn from award winning professor Matthew Andrews in this set of One Day University presentations on the cultural significance of sports.

The history of sports is also the history of power, politics and progress. From ancient origins to groundbreaking firsts, sometimes sports is history. It has been with us through every historical period—from the indigenous tribes of premodern America, through colonial societies, to the modern era of today. And the study of Sports has become an examination of how women, minorities, and ethnic and religious groups have influenced the American experience and how historical factors, such as gender, ethnicity, race, and religion, provide a more complete understanding of our common identity.
