THE TENTH INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY CONFERENCE

WHAT IS THE HOCKEY CONFERENCE?

As a sport, hockey has long thrilled people with its speed, skill, and beauty. Many people satisfy themselves with simply watching or playing the sport. For others, hockey is a muse, inspiring their writings – historically, critically, introspectively, analytically or simply to entertain or to describe.

In 2001, a group of passionate hockey folks developed this conference to provide a broad spectrum of like-minded individuals with an opportunity to gather and analyze the sport from many perspectives. The conference was inaugurated at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax NS with Dr. Colin Howell and has since travelled across North America to places such as London ON, Buffalo NY, and Victoria BC. It has become a biennial event that attracts scholars from all over the globe and organizers are hopeful that someday the event will travel to Europe.
