Intersection of Sports and Writing and Culture

Sports media remains the most consumed category of news; however, it has undergone a revolution in recent years. With the advent of streaming, the standby of sports reporting, and the match or game summary, long-form journalism and multi-media features with interpretation have increasingly become valuable. Because the form requires deeper understanding of the social context in which sport operates, academics have become drawn to this type of writing. As sports integrated women, African Americans, Latinx, LGBTQ+ athletes, and individuals with disabilities, the field began to attract scholars from a variety of disciplines. This two-day symposium brings together a diverse group of scholars, journalists, and activists for workshops, public panels, and addresses.
