AME 306 - American Fitness: Culture, Community, and Transformation

3 CR

Fitness is an American fad, industry, pop culture phenomenon, and pursuit. This class considers what fitness means in American culture, how fitness can create and sustain communities, and how fitness might be used toward social, cultural, and mind/body transformation. As a women’s studies course we also consider feminist perspectives on fitness. Course work will include a project that focuses on the individual students’ fitness interests. (This course is cross listed with WGS 306 .)

Prerequisite(s): ENG 101  and WGS 101W , or AME XXX, or permission of instructor.
