Sport in den USA

Release Date: 2012
Genre: Crafts & Hobbies

Die USA gelten als die führende Sportnation. Doch was wissen wir wirklich über den amerikanischen Sport, außer dass Baseball, American Football und Cheerleading aus diesem Land stammen? Was versteht man unter Begriffen wie Athletics, Intercollegiate Sports, Intramural Sports, Title IX, Physical Education, Super Bowl oder dem „Y“? Bisher gibt es nur wenig deutschsprachige Literatur über den amerikanischen Sport, seine Strukturen und Ausprägungsformen. Dieses Buch soll diese Lücke ein wenig schließen. Die einzelnen Beiträge, die von namhaften amerikanischen und deutschen Sportwissenschaftlerinnen und -wissenschaftlern verfasst sind, zeigen, dass der Sport in den USA eine ganz andere Struktur als der deutsche Sport mit seinem Vereinswesen aufweist.

Festkultur und Ged chtnis

Genre: History

Deutsche Migranten in den USA feierten viel und gern. In den verschiedenen Festen konstruierten sie eine deutschamerikanische Ethnizität und ein eigenständiges ethnisches Gedächtnis. Die Studie erstellt anhand umfangreicher Archivalien und Zeitungen aus den USA und Deutschland die bislang vollständigste Übersicht über die großen deutsch-amerikanischen Feste – von Sänger-, Turn-, Schützen-, Volks- und Arbeiterfesten über Schiller-Feiern zu regionalen Jubiläen und Deutschen Tagen. Sie zeigt erstmals, wie sich über Feste und transnationale Erinnerung eine deutschamerikanische Ethnizität bildete. Zugleich analysiert die Autorin, wie sich das Gedächtnis der Migrantinnen und Migranten im Laufe der Zeit wandelte, wie man mit der Auffächerung der Interessen umging und welchen Einfluss Konflikte wie der amerikanische Bürgerkrieg und der Deutsch-Französische Krieg, aber auch der wachsende US-amerikanische Patriotismus und die neue Wilhelminische ›Weltpolitik‹ des deutschen Kaiserreiches hatten. Schließlich verdeutlicht das Buch, wie sich aus verschiedenen ethnischen ›Spezialgedächtnissen‹ ein ethnisches Gesamtgedächtnis bildete.

With God on their Side

Author: Timothy Chandler
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134511662
Release Date: 2005-07-12
Genre: Religion

'Sport' and 'religion' are cultural institutions with a global reach. Each is characterised by ritualised performance and by the ecstatic devotion of its followers, whether in the sports arena or the cathedral of worship. This fascinating collection is the first to examine, in detail, the relationship between these two cultural institutions from an international, religiously pluralistic perspective. It illuminates the role of sport and religion in the social formation of collective groups, and explores how sport might operate in the service of a religious community. The book offers a series of cutting-edge contemporary historical case-studies, wide-ranging in their social and religious contexts. It presents important new work on the following fascinating topics: * sport and Catholicism in Northern Ireland * Shinto and sumo in Japan * women, sport and the American Jewish identity * religion, race and rugby in South Africa * sport and Islam in France and North Africa * sport and Christian fundamentalism in the US * Muhammad Ali and the Nation of Islam. With God on their Side is vital reading for all students of the history, sociology and culture of sport. It also presents important new research material that will be of interest to religious studies students, historians and anthropologists.

The Routledge History of American Sport

Author: Linda J. Borish
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317662495
Release Date: 2016-10-04
Genre: History

The Routledge History of American Sport provides the first comprehensive overview of historical research in American sport from the early Colonial period to the present day. Considering sport through innovative themes and topics such as the business of sport, material culture and sport, the political uses of sport, and gender and sport, this text offers an interdisciplinary analysis of American leisure. Rather than moving chronologically through American history or considering the historical origins of each sport, these topics are dealt with organically within thematic chapters, emphasizing the influence of sport on American society. The volume is divided into eight thematic sections that include detailed original essays on particular facets of each theme. Focusing on how sport has influenced the history of women, minorities, politics, the media, and culture, these thematic chapters survey the major areas of debate and discussion. The volume offers a comprehensive view of the history of sport in America, pushing the field to consider new themes and approaches as well. Including a roster of contributors renowned in their fields of expertise, this ground-breaking collection is essential reading for all those interested in the history of American sport.

Sport and Education Tribute to Martin Lee

Author: Carlos Eduardo Gonçalves
Publisher: Imprensa da Universidade de Coimbra / Coimbra University Press
ISBN: 9789898074164
Release Date: 2006-12-01
Genre: Moral education

This book has been produced as a tribute to the work of Martin Lee on the role of sport in the socio-moral education of young people. After conducting the first UK conference on Children in Sport, founded the Institute for the Study of Children in Sport at Bedford College of Higher Education in 1986 and created level 1, 2 and 3 courses on coaching children for the National Coaching Foundation. He also edited a book on Coaching Children in Sport. His course book on Coaching Children in Mini-basketball was produced for international distribution. The study of values has been central in Martin’s research which also embraced such topics as self-concept, leadership, coaching behaviour, and parental influence. In a series of research commissions examined the literature, clarified measurement requirements, identified values activated in sport, and led an international project on fair play. He then ran a survey to show how values influence attitudes directly and through the mediation of achievement goals. Two new instruments arose from this research: the Attitudes to Moral Decision-making in Youth Sport Questionnaire and the Youth Sport Values Questionnaire-2. These will open up research into gamesmanship, by which competitors seek an unfair advantage without breaking the rules, and into the mechanisms by which moral, competence and status values guide behaviour and create value conflicts. I am also grateful to colleagues at the University of Coimbra for their initiative in gathering the distinguished international scholars who have contributed to this book. Their collective insights will enhance the understanding of socio-moral education through sport and lead to informed and sensitive policy development in both sport and education.

Ethnicity and Sport in North American History and Culture

Author: George Eisen
Publisher: ABC-CLIO
ISBN: 9780275954512
Release Date: 1994
Genre: Sports & Recreation

The editors use the unique lens of the history of sports to examine ethnic experiences in North America since 1840. Comprised of 12 original essays and an Introduction, it chronicles sport as a social institution through which various ethnic and racial groups attempted to find the way to social and psychological acceptance and cultural integration. Included are chapters on Native Americans, Irish-Americans, German-Americans, Canadians, African-Americans, Italian-Americans, Hispanics, and several more, showing how their sports participation also provided these communities with some measure of social mobility, self-esteem, and a shared pride.

Urban Green

Author: Colin Fisher
Publisher: UNC Press Books
ISBN: 9781469619965
Release Date: 2015-05-11
Genre: Nature

In early twentieth-century America, affluent city-dwellers made a habit of venturing out of doors and vacationing in resorts and national parks. Yet the rich and the privileged were not the only ones who sought respite in nature. In this pathbreaking book, historian Colin Fisher demonstrates that working-class white immigrants and African Americans in rapidly industrializing Chicago also fled the urban environment during their scarce leisure time. If they had the means, they traveled to wilderness parks just past the city limits as well as to rural resorts in Wisconsin and Michigan. But lacking time and money, they most often sought out nature within the city itself--at urban parks and commercial groves, along the Lake Michigan shore, even in vacant lots. Chicagoans enjoyed a variety of outdoor recreational activities in these green spaces, and they used them to forge ethnic and working-class community. While narrating a crucial era in the history of Chicago's urban development, Fisher makes important interventions in debates about working-class leisure, the history of urban parks, environmental justice, the African American experience, immigration history, and the cultural history of nature.
