Title: Racial Segregation Within Track and Field Team
Author(s): Rhet104C-01
Subject(s): segregation race sports RHET104C S08
Abstract: Does racial segregation occur within the mens track and field team at the University of Illinois? If so when does it occur? From doing all of my research I found that in general racial segregation occurs only outside of track. During track, such as practices and competitions, we usually get along with everyone because we share the same interests in what we are doing, which is running track. Outside of track and field it’s a little different. We come from different backgrounds and have different interests in music, clothes, girls and so on. Most of my findings were found doing my group observation of the team.

Series/Report: Rhet 104, Ethnography of Race and the University, Instr. Samantha Looker: In this course, students take the writing skills that they built during Rhet 103 and apply them to research, with the ultimate goal of completing an in-depth research project. As part of the EUI-Rhetoric Race and the University Project, this class revolves around how race is represented and lived on university campuses, and specifically on our own campus here at UIUC. Students ground themselves in readings on how race is defined and talked about, and then move on to research related issues on our campus. Students will choose a research question related to race to answer in your final research project. As part of the EUI (Ethnography of the University Initiative), this class gives students the opportunity to create original scholarly research based on your firsthand experience with people, texts, and places on campus. In addition to traditional academic sources, students final research project will include several interviews, observations, surveys, and/or analyses of University texts.
