CFP- Hockey Conference deadline extended

by C. H. Wilson, Jr. on March 4, 2014

Western University LogoVisioning and Re-visioning Hockey’s ‘Arena.’
An International Scholarly Conference at Western University in London, Canada 18-20 June 2014
    Ice hockey has many ‘arenas,’ literal and figurative ones. The intent of this conference is to assemble hockey aficionados to explore meanings, experiences, insights, issues, stories, studies, cultural nuances, and contextualizations about the ‘arenas’ that contain, surround, and pervade ice hockey at all of its levels from participation to spectatorship to commodification to its darker underbelly. The conference organizing committee is open to receiving abstracts that relate to this broad theme.
   You may submit an abstract of no more than 250 words; please include all authors, contact author and her/his full contact information. The abstract should include a precise statement of the argument and conclusions, the evidence and/or resources to be used, and what significance the paper has to our understanding of hockey’s arena. All accepted presentations carry the inherent expectation that the author(s) will be in attendance at the conference to present the paper and all presenters must register in full in order to present the paper. All sessions will be held on the campus of Western University. Abstracts will be accepted until March 25, 2014 with acceptance decisions by April 15, 2014. Please email us your abstract in PDF, Word, RTF, or text format to conference@thehockeyconference.ca  For full conference information re accommodation, registration etc, please visit The Hockey Conference website at: http://www.thehockeyconference.ca/
   In keeping with the traditions established at the past iterations of The Hockey Conference, a game of shinny (on ice) will be staged on Thursday, June 19.  Please bring your own skates. Sticks will be supplied if needed.
