TALK:Stadium Cultures in North and South America

From the new World Cup arenas in Brazil to suburban ballparks in the United States, how have stadiums reflected – and even helped to produce – broader social and cultural changes? The panelists will present different perspectives on how sports stadiums, whether described in the language of business, design, or religion, play a vital role in various facets of North and South American cultures.

The panel consists of Sigrid Adriaenssens (Civil Engineering), Bruno Carvalho (Spanish/Portuguese) and William Gleason (English) and is sponsored by the Princeton-Mellon intiative.
