about

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.

Le hockey est le sport des Canadiens Les expériences et les souvenirs que nous partageons – lacer ses patins pour la toute première fois, jouer une partie de hockey de rue, le but historique marqué par Sidney Crosby, ou celui de Maurice Richard – font du hockey bien plus qu’un sport. Bien que le lien entre hockey et identité nationale ait été étudié, il faut s’interroger sur la place qu’occupe ce sport dans notre compréhension des identités canadiennes diverses et multiples d’aujourd’hui. Cet ouvrage interdisciplinaire explore le hockey tant comme sport professionnel qu’amateur, depuis une approche tantôt historique, tantôt actuelle, en lien avec des problématiques en Études canadiennes, dont le genre, la race et l’ethnicité, la compétence, la sexualité, la géographique, et lance une réflexion sur les divers aspects du hockey dans la vie des Canadiens : le jeu, les supporters, la radiodiffusion, l’activisme communautaire. 
Cet ouvrage complète l’exposition de « Hockey : Plus qu’un simple jeu », présentée par le Musée canadien de l’histoire. 

Ce livre est publié en anglais. Comprend un chapitre en français.

Read from the Book

Hockey is important to many people, but there is an inherenttension in claiming it is Canada’s game. Hockey reflects Canada’ssocial history. Through it we see how Canada has become moreinclusive, but also that there is an ongoing need to addressinequities and exclusions between groups of people.

Editorial Reviews

De manièregénérale, on ne peut que saluer la démarche de Jenny Ellison et JenniferAnderson qui ont rassemblé un imposant contingent de spécialistes du hockeyissus d’horizons disciplinaires aussi variés que les aspects abordés. Alors quele hockey professionnel est habituellement le centre d’intérêt de bien deschercheur.e.s universitaires et détient une part importante des publicationsscientifiques sur le sport au Canada, les recherches sur le hockey amateur ourécréatif ainsi que sur le hockey féminin rassemblées ici sont un apportsignificatif à la connaissance. (...) L’impression qu’on retire de la lecture de Hockey : ChallengingCanada’s Game – Au-delà du sport national, c’est la volonté des codirectrices et des collaborateur.trice.sde décoloniser le savoir sur le hockey.  - Étienne Lapointe - http://histoireengagee.ca/recension-de-hockey-challenging-canadas-game-au-dela-du-sport-national-dirige-par-jenny-ellison-et-jennifer-anderson/ - 20190402
