The course is divided into three parts. In the first one, the origin and the spread of sport practices will be interpreted in a strictly sociological vein and the role played in this process by mass media will be introduced. In the second part, the analysis will focus directly on mass media communication, examining the different sociological theories developed to understand the nature of mass communication and its influences on society. In the third and final part, attention will be given to audience research and the effects of all those process that have recently turned sport events into global spectacles.
