Center for Documentary Studies (Durham, NC 27705-4854)
John Biewen (Project Director: August 2013 to June 2016)
Contested: Sports and Society

Development of a multipart radio series exploring the social and cultural dynamics of athletics in America.

Contested is a multi-pronged project that explores the role of sport in American culture and society. It will reach millions of public radio listeners, and an online audience, through these venues: 1) a series of sound-rich short documentaries (six-to-eight-minutes) on a nationally broadcast public radio program such as NPR's "All Things Considered", and 2) a documentary for "This American Life" exploring the rapidly growing world of sports talk radio as a venue in which American men define and redefine masculinity in the 21st century.
