Connections Between Sport & Learning - Talk with UC Berkeley Professor Derek Van Rheenen

  • The Dakota 1 W 72nd St New York, NY 10023 United States of America (map)

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting UC Berkeley Professor Derek Van Rheenen, the Director of Cultural Studies of Sport in Education and the Chancellor's Public Scholar for 2012-2013. 

100% of your registration fee will go to support our university's new SMART Mentoring Program, which engages doctoral students in creating mentored research opportunities for undergraduate students at UC Berkeley.

As Professor Van Rheenen’s research interests center on the cultural studies of play, games and sport, literacy development in non-school settings, and the history of intercollegiate athletics in the American university system, this is sure to be an amazing lecture reminiscent of your favorite classes at Cal.
