  • A Night at the Gardens

    Class, Gender, and Respectability in 1930s Toronto

    Russell Field

    Drawing on archival records, Field examines the history of hockey through the experiences of spectators at the famed Maple Leaf Gardens, exploring the neighbourhood in which the arena was situated, the design of its interior spaces, and the ways in which it was operated in order to appeal to respectable spectators at a particular intersection of class and gender.

  • Decolonizing Sport

    Janice Forsyth (Editor), Christine O’Bonsawin (Editor), Russell Field (Editor), Murray G. Phillips (Editor)

    This book shows how sport both colonized, but is now decolonizing, as Indigenous Peoples are taking physical recreational activity back. Contributors demonstrate how colonizers used sport as part of the process of dispossession of land and culture, and how Indigenous Peoples used sport as liberation from colonialism in Turtle Island, the U.S., Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, and Kenya.
