Your task is to carry research on a topic of your choice. To do this, please start to think since the first day of class in possibilities for this work. My advice is to choose a sport you like and start to collect information – origins, participants, developments, controversies around, etc. You have to craft a small annotated bibliography (5 items@ class#6) and define your research question (class#8).
This paper must have a sociological focus – look at questions which relate sports and a given society. A historical context may be necessary, but your document cannot be purely historical. Your project can be on class topics, or sports and topics not discussed in class – i.e., health issues, doping, parenthood, urban consequences for mega-events, etc.
