    Muhammad Ali is frequently described as a transcendent figure in sport, politics, and culture. In scholarship as in popular representations, he has often been depicted as the most important cultural icon of the twentieth century. With his passing in June 2016, Ali’s limitless impact has been made evident once again, yet no singular view or image of Ali can be established. During this three-day symposium, students will have the opportunity to explore the ways in which Ali appears in un/expected spaces, beyond conventional readings. The symposium presentations address questions such as: What is Ali’s twenty-first century significance? How do we interpret the global meanings of Ali?  Is sport central or peripheral to understanding Ali? Hearing a range of international Ali scholarship, students can critically assess the multiple discourses, representations, and imagery of Muhammad Ali.

    Students can earn 2 ECTS credits by attending the symposium and writing a 6–8-page report.

    Registration for the course will begin at 15:00 on Wednesday, May 17, outside of Janus Hall. The first 50 students can participate in the course. 

    This course may be taken as part of Contemporary History, Cultural History, Media Studies, or North American Studies. The course is also open to students from Åbo Akademi University.

    Students will write a 6-8 page report. The report must critically analyze the major issues and questions raised by the symposium. Students will reflect on the ways in which presentations furthered understandings of Muhammad Ali’s significance in the world. The report is NOT to be a mechanical summary of the presentations. Students should carefully consider their paper’s organization and structure, utilizing the larger unifying themes and questions arising from the symposium. The report should include an introduction and conclusion. The assignment is expected to be formally written and carefully proofread. No additional sources are required, though students may include relevant materials, if they wish. Reports can be written in English or Finnish.

    The deadline for the Report is Friday, June 2, 2017. Clearly indicate your name, student number, and which program you would like the credits to be counted for on the Report's first page. Email the report as a Word attachment to the appropriate program contact:
