A Year In Beijing

November 29, 2008

University of Missouri – St. Louis (UMSL) publishes a magazine twice a year, and the fall issue arrived in my mailbox at home last week. One of the stories is about Susan Brownell, a St. Louis anthropologist and professor at UMSL, who spent a year in Bejing studying the Olympics. Dr. Brownell’s area of specialty is sports anthropolgy, a specialty that is a new idea to me. It makes sense, though: Sports are cultural.
