Communication and the Baseball Stadium : Community, Commodification, Fanship, and Memory Paperback / softback

Edited by Dale Herbeck, Susan J. Drucker

Part of the Urban Communication series

Description

Baseball stadia are places of memory, identity, athletic and architectural accomplishment.

They are sites capable of arousing passion, sentimentality and a sense of community.

The baseball stadium provides a unique lens through which to understand, explore and expand an understanding of communication theories.

While baseball has previously been explored by scholars, this volume introduces the stadium as a way of exploring communication and communication theories through an examination of the four discrete themes that frame the organization of this work: community and communication, fandom and communication, memory and communication, and commodification and communication.

This volume offers a unique approach to those interested in communication theory, popular culture, sports management, and people environment studies.
