A wonderful conference is going down this November in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for members of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport.
The NASSS exists to, "promote, stimulate, and encourage the sociological study of play, games, sport and contemporary physical culture." This is what Ghost Town to Havana is about.
"The inability of urban baseball to flourish should be seen as, in the words of sports sociologist Harry Edwards, a canary in a coal mine, a warning about how inhospitable our cities have become for poor and working-class residents." —Dave Zirin, San Francisco Chronical
Ghost Town to Havana will screen followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with:
- Eugene Corr, Director
- James McKeever, Pierce College
- Michael A. Messner, USC
