COURSE: Journalism 202 – Mass Communication Practices

MEDIUM: Website

This site is dedicated to information about boxing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, especially focusing on the ways in which its historical significance interacts with today’s club sport on campus. Through the use of audio, video, still images and web design, I compiled a user-friendly medium to learn about boxing’s extensive and charged history on campus. It was completed after spending more than 10 hours in the boxing gym, conducting nine personal interviews, consulting several written and archival sources and capturing over 300 images. Since completion, the work has been cited by the Bob Lynch Boxing Foundation where several credited images have also been featured.
