Jess Libow Response

One part of this talk that really struck me was the association of native bodies with slow decay, and how that connects to the larger idea of illness as a metaphor. I also didn't know a lot about the roots of physical education in America before this, and what I learned was really interesting. One question I had was how physical education has changed since around the time period Jess covered to now. How does Haverford show those changes, or how does it not? Should we have an atheltic requirment at all? Have other schools gotten rid of them?
