Professional sports have long been enjoyed by athletes and viewers alike. From the gladiator games of Ancient Rome, to other sports like football, basketball, soccer, tennis, etc. professional athletes seem to have it all--fame, fortune, and more. However, in recent times, we have seen areas in which perhaps these athletes do have fame and fortune, but at the cost of some of their freedoms.

This website explores topics of immigration and identity in the modern American context. Stories from Vietnamese, Guatemalan, and Muslim immigrants illustrate their unique experiences with the current American sociopolitical climate and the challenges of the immigration process.
With changes in visa policy, a xenophobic administration, and growing tensions between immigrants and non-immigrants, these stories provide the perspectives of those who bravely leave their homes. Doing so in search of safety, shelter, and opportunity in the United States of America, we have highlighted how these such endeavors have shaped the identities of these courageous immigrants.
Indigenous People Throughout the Transatlantic World: An Examination of How Different Groups Interact with Freedom
Kate Fulton, Andrew Kenzith, Katie McGannon, Jannai Bates, and Jp Clark
Indigenous people formed the basis of our country. They are critical in telling the narrative of our history and have established the foundation for understanding identity. Indigenous groups are great examples of freedom and movement across the Transatlantic World as both concepts were greatly affected by the introduction of Europeans into their native areas. This project will examine three tribes of indigenous people across the Transatlantic World and will uncover the common themes of the effects of European influence on these peoples.
Healthcare Across the Atlantic Ocean: Looking at Healthcare in the United States vs. the United Kingdom
Anna Kemper, Collin Cahill, Thomas Rousseau, Hayley Sutherland, and Julianna Neuger
Healthcare is such a hotly debated topic in the political realm, especially in the United States. Many people argue that the United States needs a socialized healthcare system, similar to the system in countries like the United Kingdom.
Our goal is to look at how these healthcare systems compare in regards to the barriers to obtain healthcare, discrimination that occurs in the system, and how freedom ties into this topic. Overall, the goal of improving access to healthcare is most important, because people need to be taken care of when they are sick or injured.

The website draws connections between sex trafficking and how it connects to the Butler course about freedom and movement. It draws those connections by discussing how trafficking involves the forced movements of an individual, discussing how globalization impacts sex trafficking, and discussing the history of slavery and freedom and its connection to sex trafficking.
