The Center for Material Culture Studies will host a series of talks called “The Material Culture of Sports” this fall. The 50-minute talks by university faculty and students will have free admission and may serve as a one credit, pass-fail undergraduate class. Talks will cover subjects including the Olympics and the value of a gold medal, the evolution of early American sports and sportswear. The lectures will be held on Wednesdays from 1:25 to 2:15 p.m. in Memorial Hall room 112.
