Abstract

This research-creation M.A. thesis involves engaging with an important emerging media trend that I call “radical sports journalism”. Radical sports journalism investigates how political power is manifested and contested both through and around sports. The last year has witnessed widespread protests in sports to various forms of oppression, yet why have such protests not permeated the hockey world in North America? As a media practitioner, researcher, and hockey enthusiast, I am very interested in how sports journalism and broadcasting can be mobilized to create circumstances for a better world. However, very little radical sports journalism has touched on hockey in Canada. This research involves interviews with athletes, sports scholars, and hockey commentators whose work looks at gender, sexuality, race and nationalism in hockey. I examine how Canadian nationalist ideologies are deployed, reinforced and contested through hockey. The final product of this research-creation project is a podcast series showcasing my interviews.
