CFP: Sport, Identity and Social Division in Canada

Call for Papers
Sport, Identity and Social Division in Canada
(Volume 33, 2006)

From Confederation in 1867 onward, the burgeoning Canadian nation has used organized sport as a vehicle to create an emblematic identity that has strongly supported patriotic affirmation. And, paradoxically, organized sport has also been used as a strategy aimed at the maintenance of minority cultural identities. The metaphorical power of organized sport, wedded to its malleability as a culturally-significant element, has enabled it to evolve into both a vehicle permitting integration with the predominant Canadian society, and one through which minority cultural identity is affirmed. Successive waves of migrants to our shores brought in their train a number of sporting activities that either mirrored the minority identities of the immigrants or influenced the dominant Canadian culture. Moreover, the domain of sport is characterized by social tugs of war between divergent interests that are defined not only by gender, national, ethnic or linguistic groupings but also by social class. Today, more young people play soccer than hockey, although hockey is more often than not played by men. And while its mythical power to bind the country together has begun to wane, it remains a vital expression of Canadian nationalism. But which of Canada’s identities is reflected by hockey? Masculine, white, violent and smacking of capitalism? Or a renewed identity, one that embraces the other national communities (Quebec and the First Nations), ethnocultural communities, as well as bilingualism, women and social inequalities? What is the role of sport in both the creation and the reproduction of identities and inequalities in Canada? How do such interactions play out between the various groups involved in and affected by sport? Does sport aid in promoting certain social identities to the exclusion of others, or rather in the establishment of specific criteria for belonging? Clearly, the issues of sport, identity and social division in Canada have been and remain today a complex problematic.

The International Journal of Canadian Studies, together with the Research Centre for Sport in Canadian Society, of the University of Ottawa is seeking submissions of papers that reflect the diversity of experiences, inequalities and representations of sport in Canada from historical, sociological, political, anthropological and ethnographical perspectives.

Kindly submit your paper (20-30 pages), along with an abstract of 100 words or less, by May 1, 2006 to the Guy Leclair, Managing Editor, IJCS, 250 City Centre, S-303, Ottawa, Ontario. K1R 6K7 Canada.

Soumission de textes
Sport, identités et clivages sociaux au Canada
(Volume 33, 2006)

Dès la Confédération en 1867, le sport organisé a servi d’outil d’affirmation patriotique dans la construction d’une identité emblématique de la nation canadienne naissante. Il a servi aussi, paradoxalement, de stratégie pour assurer le maintien des identités culturelles minoritaires. Compte tenu de son pouvoir métaphorique et de sa malléabilité à titre de signifiant culturel, le sport devient tout autant un outil d’intégration à la société canadienne majoritaire que de véhicule d’affirmation des minorités culturelles. Les vagues successives d’immigration ont amené avec elles de nombreuses pratiques sportives, reproduisant les identités minoritaires ou influençant la culture majoritaire canadienne. Par ailleurs, le terrain du sport est caractérisé par des luttes sociales entre des intérêts divergents selon les sexes, les groupes nationaux, ethniques, linguistiques et les classes sociales. Aujourd’hui, davantage de jeunes garçons jouent au soccer plutôt qu’au hockey, mais ce dernier est toujours le sport le plus pratiqué chez les hommes. Et bien que son pouvoir mythique d’intégrateur national commence à perdre de son ampleur, il demeure une expression manifeste du nationalisme canadien. Mais de quelle identité canadienne? Une identité masculine, blanche, violente et associée au capitalisme? Une identité renouvelée, inclusive des autres communautés nationales (le Québec et les Premières Nations) et communautés ethnoculturelles, du bilinguisme, des femmes et des inégalités sociales? Quel est le rôle du sport dans la production et la reproduction des identités et des inégalités au Canada? Comment se jouent les interactions entre ses divers groupes dans et par le sport? Le sport participe-t-il à la mise en valeur de certaines représentations à l’exclusion d’autres, à l’établissement de critères d’appartenance particuliers? Ainsi, la question du sport, des identités et des clivages sociaux au Canada a été, et reste encore aujourd¹hui, une problématique complexe.

La Revue internationale d’études canadiennes s’associe avec le Centre de recherche sur le sport dans la société canadienne de l’Université d’Ottawa pour inviter la soumission de textes qui témoignent de la diversité des expériences, des inégalités et des représentations du sport au Canada d’une perspective historique, sociologique, politique, anthropologique et ethnographique.

La RIÉC vous invite à soumettre un texte (20 à 30 pages) ainsi qu’un résumé (maximum 100 mots) d’ici le 1er mai 2006 au secrétariat de la Revue internationale d’études canadiennes, 250, City Centre, S-303, Ottawa, Ontario K1R 6K7 Canada.

IPAS is expanding its research programmes by the creation of a new research
team on social capital and sporting organisations in the European Union. The
project is hosted by Bocconi University and is to be funded by a Marie Curie
Excellence Grant from the European Commission to Dr. Margaret Groeneveld. The
project will specifically focus on organisations in Denmark, Italy, France and

the Czech Republic).

We seek talented and enthusiastic individuals who are keen to work within a
dynamic, interactive, innovative, and international research team.
Demonstrated understanding of social capital theories and of the
practicalities of organisational research are essential.

The Team will be based in Milan, with full support for travel and research
expenses related to the country studies. The working language and primary
academic output of the Team will be in English.

The project duration is three years beginning January 2006.

Enquiries about the research programme and selection criteria should be

CFP: International Conference on Sport and Development

10, 11, 12 April 2006
University of the Western Cape (UWC)
Cape Town, South Africa

On behalf of the conference organizers of the University of the Western Cape (UWC), in collaboration with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and the Universiteit Gent, we have the pleasure of inviting you to an International Conference on Sport and Development, to be held in Cape Town (South Africa) on 10, 11 and 12 April 2006.

Although the combination of sport and development is relatively new in the context of development and co-operation projects, sport has been recognized by the UN as a useful and cost-effective tool for promoting development. The University of the Western Cape (UWC), in partnership with the Flemish Inter-University Council (VLIR), has embarked on a 5- to 10-year joint programme on "Dynamics of Building a Better Society”. One of this project’s goals is to evaluate the potential of sport for youth wellness and community development.

With this international conference, an attempt is made to add to the existing debate by gathering different stakeholders in sport and development. It can be seen as a straight answer to the call for implementation of the UN Millennium Goals and the creation of a ‘UN Interagency Task Force on Sport for Development and Peace’ in July 2002. The conference objectives also build on the objectives of the South-African ‘White Paper: ‘Getting the Nation to Play’ and the activities of Panathlon International aiming at a high quality of sports delivery.

The specific aim of the conference is to be a follow-up of the UNICEF workshop on monitoring and evaluation of sports-based programming for development in New York (2005), with focus on sport and HIV/AIDS prevention, social inclusion and community development. Distinguished keynote speakers and presentations of participants from universities, sport organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), governmental services and policy makers will guarantee both the quality and the practical relevance of the event. The underlying purpose of the International Conference is expressed in the title ‘Unlocking the Potential of Sport for Youth Wellness and Development’.

Our aim is to make your stay in Cape Town professionally rewarding and also socially enjoyable with a distinct flavour of the celebrated South African rainbow culture.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference!

Prof. Dr. C. Malcolm
Chair of the Organizing Committee (UWC)

Prof. Dr. R. Mpofu
Dean, Community and Health Sciences Faculty (UWC)

Prof. Dr. Y. Vanden Auweele
