Description

Title:The Student Soldier Athlete: Representations of athletes at the University of Illinois in the 1940s
Author(s):Ivaska, James
Subject(s):History
Athletics
Media
Photography
Abstract:This project investigates the photographic representation of student athletes and references to their service in the military in the 1940s, specifically during World War II. On the basis of archival, literature, and internet research, the author analyzes the ideological messages associated with these photographs, one in particular, concerning gender, sexuality, and race. The study discusses the war ideology, its links to physical education, and the context of emerging photography. The photograph analyzed conveys strong messages about white, heterosexual masculinity.
