Roger Pielke Launches New Research Program on the Science, Technology, Policy and Politics of Sport

STePPSScience, Technology, Policy and Politics of Sport, STePPS is a new project of the CIRES Center for Science and Technology Policy Research. It is focused on the governance of sport, with a special emphasis on the roles of science and technology in how sport is governed. STePPS will focus on original research, university education and outreach to the broader community. We have partnered with the emerging undergraduate certificate program in Critical Sports Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies. Roger will also be teaching a new course in the spring semester, ETHN 3104: The Governance of Sport. The goal of this course is to introduce students to issues of governance in various societal settings as viewed through the lens of sport. Students should emerge from this class with tools of critical thinking and analysis, along with greater substantive knowledge of various interesting and important cases in the governance of sport.
