02/04/2014 

SUNY Cortland’s Clark Center for International Education will shed light on the implications of this year’s Winter Olympic Games by leading a panel discussion Monday, Feb. 10, on Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

“Putin’s Games: Sport, Society, Politics and Economy” takes place at 3 p.m. in the Corey Union Fireplace Lounge. The event is free and open to the public.

Faculty members from SUNY Cortland’s kinesiology and sport management departments and Southwest University in China will explain what the Games mean for many involved — the people of Sochi, the volatile Northern Caucasus region and consumers around the world, among others. The scholars also will discuss the history of the Winter Olympic Games and China’s role in them.

Panelists for the discussion and their areas of interest include:

  • Ted Fay, a SUNY Cortland professor of sport management, who will break down the political implications of the Olympics;
  • Jin Huang, an associate professor of physical education from Southwest University in China, who will explain China’s participation in the Winter Olympic Games;
  • Yomee Lee, a SUNY Cortland associate professor of kinesiology, who will discuss the socio-economic implications of the Olympics; and
  • Susan Rayl, a SUNY Cortland associate professor of kinesiology, who will speak on the history of the Winter Olympic Games.

Alexandru Balas, the director of the Clark Center for International Education, will serve as a moderator for the discussion.
