This class was "study of culture" but he essentially treated it like those classes ending in 9, so it was really "anthropology of sport." There were usually 2-4 readings per week about mid-long length. Each week we had to submit questions to our TA as proof of having read the papers, but this wasn't a huge percentage of our grade.
There were 3 assignments: 1 to observe a sports game, 1 to interview/analyze an interview of an athlete, and 1 to write a biography on an athlete. Each of these assignments required us to apply core concepts. These were the bulk of the grade. They weren't too bad, but it depends on the TA that grades it. They were all also group assignments, so individually not that much work.
Aomar Boum was a pretty decent lecturer. He didn't record the lectures, but he did upload slides. The slides didn't have a lot of information either so if you wanted to learn the material you had to go to lecture.
I'm not sure how often this class is taught, but it wasn't very high stakes. It was easy and the topic was interesting. I would take it again.
