Stadium Cultures in North and South America
Sigrid Adriaenssens (Civil Engineering), Bruno Carvalho (Spanish/Portuguese), William Gleason (English)
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.
