The evolution of combat sports from the earliest stages of recorded history, namely starting with the Egyptians of antiquity through the ancient Greeks (the founders of the original Olympics), the Romans and progressing up to the modern age, will be surveyed and analyzed in terms of its societal, economic, religious, etc. impact and of course its entertainment value.

Gender and the Sports & Entertainment Industry: A Contemporary and Historical Perspective

This course will explore the role of men and women in contemporary times and its evolution since antiquity. The economic, financial, and societal impact on today's American society as well as on societies and civilizations across the world, currently and throughout history will be explored.

Special emphasis will be placed on the role of women, particularly in contemporary times when they are increasingly engaged as participants/athletes, officials, managers, administrators, entrepreneurs and at all levels and facets of the sports and entertainment industry. Furthermore today's involvement of females in so-called traditionally male dominated sports will be explored. Lastly the historical role of women versus that of men from ancient Greece, Imperial Rome, Medieval Europe, Asian societies, etc. will be studied.

The impact, currently and historically, of sports and entertainment as shaper and reflector of social norms and wants and on the individual and even by gender will be studied. To that end the financial ramifications of the modern era sports and entertainment industries in the United States and internationally will be surveyed. Finally Title IX and its importance on the evolution and progress of American female athletes will be examined. Justin Giordano

Sports and Athletics as the Oldest Form of Entertainment

The purpose of this course is to explore the role of the sports and athletics as one of, if not, the oldest forms of entertainment. From the early days of human evolution, athletics have been at the heart of human activity and reflected the mores and values of those respective societies. One of its earliest forms of athletic events revolved around combat sports, and the history and implication of this will be examined and analyzed.

Upon completion of this study students will have learned about the many purposes of athletics, among them being to entertain, impress and please the masses. Athletes were the original entertainers and idols from the dawn of time, prior to and up to the evolution of organized spectacles such as the ancient Greek Olympics and festivals, and the spectacular games featured during the era of the Roman Empire featured in massive venues such as the Roman colosseum and other amphitheaters around the empire. Athletics also preceded all other forms of entertainment.

Students will also examine the impact that the athlete and early sports had on the development of the participants, the societies in which they evolved, and the contributions they heaved upon the multitude of generations that followed. The respective role of females and males in this realm will also have been focused upon. Particular emphasis being placed on non-team sports and athletics and the legacy that has been felt through the ages up to the present date. Justin Giordano
