What role do sports play in the expression of Canadian cultural identities? In sports, we celebrate inclusion and common purpose, but the history of sports has been marked, much of the time, by prejudice and exclusion. From lacrosse through women’s hockey, Canadian sports have expressed collective resistance, protected endangered community traditions and been key sites of conflict over the character of Canadian society. This symposium brings together five scholars whose work addresses the complex role of sports in Canada and will be hosted by Brendan Kelly, journalist for the Montreal Gazette, CBC Radio and Radio-Canada. It will take place on Tuesday, May 5, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the McGill Faculty Club (3450 McTavish). This event is free and open to the public. Reception to follow.
