Baseball as American Culture

Join us for a fascinating history of America’s game with UMass Lowell Professor Frank Morris. 

Learn how baseball galvanized a divided nation in the 19th century and developed into “America’s Pastime” as an allegory to our cultural identity in the decades to come. 

Includes a history of the Boston Red Sox and a look at how the game both reinforced and challenged key cultural themes over time.

Frank Morris has taught at several colleges in Massachusetts as an associate English Professor of Literature, Writing, and American Culture. Frank lectures around New England on literature and sports in American culture.
