This book showcases student exploration the role of sports in cultivating the collegiate ideal in their own college going experiences. Topics include the influence of esports, recreational activities, intramural, club, and spectator sports on pre-college choices and campus life. Students individually and collectively investigate how sports activities cultivate the collegiate ideal through ceremonies, stories, rituals and rites of passage, and unique language; all of which are most well understood by insiders to the campus community (Toma, 2010; Toma & Kezar, 1999). Using the inquiry tools of autoethnography, students highlight their individual and shared  experiences of ‘going to college’ and the role of the collegiate ideal.

The Telling Our Stories project is designed so students work in teams to document and produce short digital stories highlighting the experiences of other UW-Tacoma students with regards to one or various aspects of their identity, whether related to race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, disability, place of origin, etc. The goal is to understand how student’s identity, and overall way of seeing the world, affect their college experience, whether in the classroom or on other spaces across campus.

Through this course, students have engaged in conversation about their own social identities and their positionality in relationship to the people they are interviewing. The project employs different elements of pre-production, production and post-production, skills the students have begun to learn through this class. In addition to the videos, students have also developed this online platform where the work can be viewed and made accessible to the public.

Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) is widely recognized as one of the most important American artists of the 20th century. He is best known for epic multi-panel narratives like the Migration Series (1940-1941) and Struggle: from the History of the American People (1954-56), which he created as a young artist living and working in in New York City. The second half of Lawrence’s career, which he spent in Seattle as a Professor of Art at the University of Washington, has received far less attention. The essays in this volume, researched and written by the participants in the Spring 2021 art history seminar “Art and Seattle: Jacob Lawrence” at the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design, fill in this gap. In so doing, we take our lead from the artist’s own framing of the Seattle period as a critical stage in his artistic development, in which conceptual and formal concerns explored across his long career converged and became more of the sum of their parts.
