Welcome to BEA's Sports Division, established in April 2008. For a long time sports wore the tag of the "toy store." No serious study of the media could include a look at sports. But, times have changed. Academics as well as non-academics have seen that, for better or worse, sports are an essential element of U.S. and worldwide culture. This has led to a surge in academic organizations that recognize and embrace sports as a legitimate intellectual pursuit. A number of academic journals have been developed all devoted to sports, and schools that have sports-related classes, and even majors, are growing in number as we speak. All of those things helped spur BEA to begin a Sports Division.
Sports Division Vice-Chair: Denise Belafonte-Young, Lynn University
