Sports and Humanities
Presented by Erin R. McCoy.
This presentation traces the importance of sport to antiquity and around the world – we begin with sports “propaganda” on Grecian urns and end with a discussion of the who “owns” the modern athlete. Marketing campaigns and the evolution of sport also explored, along with the role of women in sport throughout history, “GOATs,” and more. The program links a discussion of sports to the greater human condition.
