Call For Papers. Hockey on the Border: An International Scholarly Conference
June 3 - 5, 2010, Buffalo, New York, U.S.A.
“Hockey on the Border” is a multidisciplinary conference that will bring together the interests of those who study hockey in its variety of forms and contexts, past and present. Located in one of the sport’s best-known border cities, this three-day event will examine how hockey works and what it has come to mean to Canadians, Americans and others around the globe. Scholars from all academic disciplines and critical perspectives are invited to submit presentation proposals and to participate. All papers that examine hockey in a scholarly way will be considered, but proposals involving the following themes are especially encouraged:
• Hockey as a transborder phenomenon
• International trade and the commerce of hockey
• Media coverage and the representation of hockey in international context
• Hockey’s internal boundaries: gender, race, class (and others)
• PuckLit: the borders of hockey fiction
• Memoirs, memory, nostalgia and myth
• Violence: a marginal role?
• Hockey as labour, hockey as management
“Hockey on the Border” is co-hosted by the Department of Sport Management, Brock University; the Canadian Studies Program at Bridgewater State College; the Canadian Studies Committee of the University at Buffalo; the Sport Administration Program at Canisius College; and the Middle Atlantic and New England Council for Canadian Studies. The conference continues the occasional series of scholarly conferences on hockey begun at Saint Mary’s University (Halifax) in 2001 and hosted most recently by the University of Victoria in 2007.
Presentation abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted electronically or in hard copy by December 10, 2009 to both of the conference co-chairs:
