Racism and Discrimination in the Sporting World

Universitas Press
Racism and Discrimination in the Sporting World explores the environments that enable an athlete to excel or fail in his/her respective sport, as well as factors such as racism, discrimination, or financial advantage, that propel or hinder an athlete’s achievements. This volume also 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.
RELATED TOPICS: Cultural Studies

Eileen M. Angelini is the recipient of a 2010-2011 Canada-U.S. Fulbright award as a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Globalization and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. She received her PhD in French Studies from Brown University.
