September 28-29, 2018, University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
As recent events throughout North America suggest, race is and has long been intertwined with sports. In Canada, however, many of the stories and experiences of athletes in a racialized context have been invisible or overlooked. In this Symposium, we are calling for contemporary and historical papers that focus on Canadian experiences that address sports, broadly defined, in the context of a racialized world. Papers may focus on individuals, teams, or deal with themes that address sports and race in relation to: community, nation, and identity; social justice; gender and class; region; sport as a manifestation of cultural practices. It may focus on local amateur, grassroots, or elite play, and cover local, regional or international activities. Presenters from all disciplines are invited.
