Soccer is a global phenomenon in which a major percentage of people participate all around the world. In this course, we used soccer as a way to analyze various cultures and the interactions within them. Countries that have major characteristics as seen in their society can be represented through the ways soccer allows these expressions to occur. It is seen in not only the players, but the fans and how they protect their titles as soccer becomes a major nationalistic figure.
This course was inspired by the work of Franklin Foer:
How Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalization
This is a video I developed for my feature presentation final to demonstrate my knowledge of the course, and share information about this extended project for our future lesson plans.
