Examines the history of physical culture in America, focusing on the period from the end of the Civil War to the Cold War. Physical culture refers to a broad range of movement practices including sport, play, rehabilitative exercise, health and fitness training, and recreation and leisure. More specifically, we challenge the idea that historical physical culture practices--and the scientific processes from which they were derived--were 'neutral' or 'objective'; rather, we explore the cultural, social, political, and economic contexts shaping physical culture knowledge, study, structures, and policies across American history. The goal is for you to learn and apply techniques of historical analysis to develop a critical understanding of how knowledge about, and practices of, physical culture supported a particular social order via the construction of difference, norms, and/or hierarchies, and ultimately contributed to some of the inequalities that endure today.

It is critical for sports medicine and sport performance specialists to understand the location and inter-relationships of the structures of the body that impact human movement. Thus, the primary purpose of this course is to facilitate an in-depth, understanding of the muscles of the body. Specifically, students will learn the origins, insertions, primary and secondary functions, as well as nervous innervations of the major muscle groups of the body. In addition, students will develop palpation skills and learn to grade the function of each muscle through manual muscle testing techniques. These skills form the foundation for assessing functional movement as well as performing safe and effective manual therapy techniques. Thus, while the focus of the class will be to develop sound, introductory palpation and manual muscle testing skills, basic principles of functional movement and manual therapy will also be addressed through hands-on application as well as case study.
