Richard Wright, Curators’ Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at UMSL, interviews Susan Brownell, professor of anthropology at UMSL, for a podcast on the Olympics for the British Journal of Sociology. UMSL alumnus and freelance videographer Shawn Rory, BA communication 2006, filmed the interview for a podcast that will be posted this spring on the journal’s website.
The interview was filmed March 16 at Glen Echo Country Club in Normandy, Mo. The club hosted the golf matches for the 1904 Olympics.
Wright is the editor in chief of the British Journal of Sociology in London. The 2012 Summer Olympics will be held in London. Brownell is an expert on the Olympic Games and edited the book “The 1904 Anthropology Days and Olympic Games: Sport, Race, and American Imperialism.”
