The Texas Program in Sports and Media will feature Dr. Ben Carrington and a conversation about his book Race, Sport and Politics: The Sporting Black Diaspora on Friday, February 25, at 3:00 in BUR 228. An Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, Carrington researches issues of masculinity and national identity formation and the nature of cultural resistance within the arena of popular culture.
Dr. John Hoberman, a professor in the Department of Germanic Studies, will join Dr. Carrington in this dialogue, offering counterpoint and perspective on issues raised in the book. This collegial conversation offers an opportunity to nurture the developing community of sports and society scholarship at UT-Austin. The session is open to faculty, students, administrators, staff and alumni who have an interest contributing to the discussion.
