The McGraw Seminar in Writing: What Sports Tell Us about Our World

Steve Fainaru

Back to "Fall 2022" courses

The recent Winter Olympics were set against the backdrop of China's genocidal repression of Uyghur Muslims. The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team sued its governing body for equal pay. Colin Kaepernick took a knee and millions around the world followed. This course will examine human rights, social justice, urban development, gender and income inequality, mental health and other topics through sports. Students will learn a variety of journalism techniques--from news gathering and feature-writing to investigative reporting--to craft compelling and impactful stories that reveal how sports spill over the sidelines to shape and reflect our world.

If the course fills, you may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
