SOCCER AS GLOBAL HISTORY Students in this course will explore the ways that soccer was shaped by and helped shape the global political, social, and cultural history since 1870. Emerging in the private schools of upper class England, soccer quickly spread across the global following patterns of trade, colonization, and war. As soon as it appeared, the game became embedded in debates about race, class, ethnicity, gender, and political and social economy. [HSS]
