Seminar Title: Sports, Play & Games in Interaction - Rules are the basis for our shared social order and language. In this class, we explore rules in sports, play, and games to examine the structure of rules themselves. We will show the way in which rules are not external constraints on settings, but are in fact productive resources used by participants in these settings (and many others) in order to manage the activities to hand. By playing games, examining the unstated codes of conduct in sports, and exploring rules in everyday interactions we will uncover some of the shared nature of our human social life.
