JOEL NATHAN ROSEN'S RECONSTRUCTING FAME
Joel Nathan Rosen, assistant professor of sociology, will be signing copies of Reconstructing Fame: Sport, Race, and Evolving Reputations at the Barnes & Noble, Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley on Saturday, February 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The book is a collection of essays co-edited by Rosen that examines the legacies of Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Curt Flood, Paul Robeson, Jim Thorpe, Bill Russell, Tommie Smith, and John Carlos—twentieth-century athletes whose careers were affected by racism, and whose post-career reputations have improved as society's understanding of race has changed.
Reconstructing Fame: Sport, Race, and Evolving Reputations, recently released by the University Press of Mississippi, is the first of the collaborative series co-edited by Joel Nathan Rosen and David C. Ogden.
