|Title:||Differences in Social Culture|
|Author(s):||Booker, Alex; Covarrubias, Jesus; Greetis, Anna|
|Abstract:||Our project is focused on the differences between student athletes and “regular” students (those who do not participate in varsity sports) at the University of Illinois Our observations inform our assumptions that student athletes appear to form a culture unique to themselves, complete with sub-cultures, and separate from that of other students. Team members do not experience any sort of segregation while they are together which supports our observations that student athletes have a culture different from that of general population. Rather that when athletes are together they find themselves free of the general racism in our culture as a whole. Through this, the athletes have a uniquely safe place to be accepted.|
|Course / Semester:||RHET105 Section B4C3 (Race and Ethnicity at UIUC)
Professor Thomas Herakovich
In this Rhetoric 105 class students were expected to: 1. develop skills as readers and writers by reading and writing sophisticated prose, including ethnographic papers/books/articles and research papers/journals/books/articles; 2. experience writing as a process of revision and collaboration, where longer, more complex pieces grow out of earlier work—ideas, collaboration, field notes, summaries, abstracts, data tables, charts, and graphs; 3. reflect and analyze conventional and personal reading and writing processes as readers and writers while reading, writing about, and discussing the texts of the course: published work, peers’ work, as well as personal work; 4. become more practiced at using writing as a means of investigation, writing as an early strategy for discovering and for answering questions, thus challenging the commonplace belief that all writing is designed to prove something once and for all; 5. identify and connect the intellectual and philosophical insights that arise when reading and writing personal and ethnographic essays, to the contexts of our day to day lives; 6. accomplish 1-5 above within a course context dedicated to investigating Race and Ethnicity here at UIUC and elsewhere through theorizing and practicing the art of writing and critiquing personal, ethnographic, academic papers, and various forms of data presentation.
