Sports In Society

More Than Games

There’s no doubt sports play a role in our society more significant than the games themselves. We examine this during our 60 minute television program. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of History made this project possible by bringing an outstanding group of sports historians to campus for the annual Pauley Memorial Symposium.

NET borrowed the experts for our panel discussion, held in the rustic gym at Lincoln’s Hawthorne Elementary School. The wide-ranging conversation tackled topics like college sports spending, impact of the media, and race and gender issues.
