This course will explore communication in sports and games and settings of training for sport. Students will explore interaction in sports by participating appropriately in actual play and settings of training. Students will engage with the constructive nature of rules, the problems of managing how to communicate what we feel in our bodies and issues in the analysis of movement. Students of this course will learn how sports and training as specific settings are constructed and managed by athletes and coaches.  Course Goals:  This course applies ethnomethodology and phenomenology to explore communication in settings of sport. it is expected that students will have, or have the ability to develop, enough expertise with one specific sport in order to instruct one class session on the actual play of one element of a specific sport (non-traditional sports are encouraged). Students will participate as both novice trainees and expert teachers in these actual sports during class time in order to experience the communication practices described by this course. Using these experiences as a basis at the completion of this course students will be able to describe; how general problems of experience come into play in settings of sport, how specific organizational structures of training and play are enacted in sports, how rules constitute sports settings and practices of correction and motivation employed by coaches and athletes in settings of training. Students will conduct a major research project collecting video recorded data on sport of their in order to explore these questions of experience, structure and training.

Additional Course Details: 

In this class, we will explore the enormous rhetorical powers of photographic images - whether combined with photographic images - whether combined with text or not - to inform, educate, delight, and, of course, persuade viewers. We will learn how to consider the rhetorical function of photographs that were taken with the intent to record as well as those that were taken with the intent to persuade; “disposable” photographs as well as famous “classics”; single, unique photographs as well as those commonly embedded in social movements and photo-essays; contemporary photographs “in the prime of” their original rhetorical function as well as some that have outlasted their original message to take on new rhetorical functions. In addition to thinking about particular photographs, we will also consider the ethos of photography itself as a scientific imaging technology. We will supplement our viewing by reading what some of the theorists have had to say about photographs and other kinds of pictures. And, finally, we will sample some of the work rhetorical critics have produced as the discipline has expanded to acknowledge the importance of visual as well as verbal rhetorical artifacts.

Course Description:

Civil discourse represents meaningful forms of communication that provide citizens space to talk about pressing social issues together in ways that move away from adversarial disengagement and towards mutual understanding and vibrant democratic processes. As a capstone experience, this course employs qualitative research methods to investigate the ways participants engage in civil discourse and make these experiences meaningful through their communication practices. Students will become competent in qualitative data collection methods (e.g., interviewing/focus groups, participant observation and fieldnote writing, transcribing) and analysis and interpretation of research materials to advance insightful understandings; refine writing and presentation skills; and gain understanding of the role and value of qualitative research in contributing to civic society and applied across contexts. Students will participate in ongoing research and public reporting on behalf of the Civil Discourse Lab (CDL); however, students need not have been previously affiliated with the CDL.

This course is about team building, alternative conflict resolution, and creative problem solving. We will explore the idea that, contrary to prevailing cultural assumptions, a significant factor in our achievements at work and play can be traced not to our individual attributes but rather to the relationships that we develop in our conversations with others. We will examine the dialogic basis of these relationships, drawing on a range of philosophic traditions and practical activities that highlight the social basis of thought. Prereq: CMN 455, CMN 456, CMN 457, and two 500-level CMN courses, or permission. CMN majors only.
