Description

Le hockey est le sport des Canadiens Les experiences et les souvenirs que nous partageons - lacer ses patins pour la toute premiere fois, jouer une partie de hockey de rue, le but historique marque par Sidney Crosby, ou celui de Maurice Richard - font du hockey bien plus qu'un sport.

Bien que le lien entre hockey et identite nationale ait ete etudie, il faut s'interroger sur la place qu'occupe ce sport dans notre comprehension des identites canadiennes diverses et multiples d'aujourd'hui.

Cet ouvrage interdisciplinaire explore le hockey tant comme sport professionnel qu'amateur, depuis une approche tantot historique, tantot actuelle, en lien avec des problematiques en Etudes canadiennes, dont le genre, la race et l'ethnicite, la competence, la sexualite, la geographique, et lance une reflexion sur les divers aspects du hockey dans la vie des Canadiens : le jeu, les supporters, la radiodiffusion, l'activisme communautaire.

Cet ouvrage complete l'exposition de " Hockey : Plus qu'un simple jeu ", presentee par le Musee canadien de l'histoire.

Ce livre est publie en anglais. Comprend un chapitre en francais. -For Canadians, hockey is the game. Shared experiences and memories-lacing up for the first time, shinny on an outdoor rink, Sidney Crosby's historic goal, or the one scored by Maurice Richard-make hockey more than just a game.

While the relationship between hockey and national identity has been studied, where does the game fit into our understanding of multiple, diverse Canadian identities today?

This interdisciplinary book considers hockey, both as professional and amateur sport, and both in historical and contemporary context, in relation to larger themes in Canadian Studies, including gender, race/ethnicity, ability, sexuality, geography, and reflects upon all aspects of hockey in Canadian life: play, fandom, sports broadcasting, and community activism.

This interdisciplinary scholarly collection is an extension of the "Hockey in Canada: More Than Just a Game" exhibition presented by the Canadian Museum of History.

This book is published in English. Includes one chapter in French.
