About

Learn how sports have provided a key strategy for engaging young people in positive change and working toward social justice in Brazil.

With Brazil's preparations for the 2016 Olympic Games as a backdrop, study how sports and social justice interact in Brazil. Interact with soccer clubs, NGOs, and social justice groups as you consider the transformative potential of young people's engagement in sports. Examine where sports fit into Brazilian culture and popular imagination and how sports have intersected with or challenged racial, gender, and other forms of social exclusion.

Major topics of study include:

- Social movements in Brazil’s past and present
- Ways in which civil society and governmental organizations develop sports policy and practice as an instrument of human development and social justice
- How race, gender, and sexuality have affected access to sports participation, influenced media portrayals of players, and currently inform new sports initiatives
- How sports are being used to offer at-risk youth opportunities to develop self-confidence and self-esteem
- How mega-sporting events fit into Brazilian society and how politics and the media portray these events
