Abstract

La plus fameuse de toutes les équipes de hockey est l'objet au Québec d'une formidable consolidation historique, identitaire, économique et culturelle. Plutôt que de nourrir le mythe du Grand Club — il n'en a guère besoin —, ce livre porte un regard critique sur son inscription sociale. De l'économie à la philosophie en passant par la sociologie, l'urbanisme et la science des religions, les auteurs conjuguent leurs perspectives pour tenter de mieux comprendre la place du Canadien dans la Cité.

Abstract

Sport literature is never just about sport. The genre’s potential to explore the human condition, including aspects of violence, gender, and the body, has sparked the interest of writers, readers, and scholars. Over the last decade, a proliferation of sport literature courses across the continent is evidence of the sophisticated and evolving body of work developing in this area. Writing the Body in Motion offers introductory essays on the most commonly taught Canadian sport literature texts. The contributions sketch the state of current scholarship, highlight recurring themes and patterns, and offer close readings of key works. Organized chronologically by source text, ranging from Shoeless Joe (1982) to Indian Horse (2012), the essays offer a variety of ways to read, consider, teach, and write about sport literature.

Abstract

Ce livre propose des regards diversifiés - par les genres d'écritures et par les interprétations données - sur les genèses, les formes et les processus d'identification du sport au Québec. L'histoire du sport est présentée inscrite dans la société québécoise comme une “histoire qui s'écrit et qui se dit”, c'est-à- dire dont la mise en récit a, en tant que telle, des effets de socialisation. Le hockey sur glace, qui apparaît à Montréal à la fin du xixe siècle, fournit un exemple emblématique de la dimension identitaire nationale du sport, qu'il soit de loisir ou de compétition. Longtemps sujet d'étude secondaire, le sport s'affirme de plus en plus, au Québec et dans le reste du monde, comme un élément majeur de la culture contemporaine. De la place de l'objet sport dans les sciences sociales et dans la littérature, la vingtaine d'auteurs représentant plusieurs universités canadiennes apporte un témoignage et des analyses montrant combien la culture du sport peut être un révélateur des changements sociaux globaux.

Abstract

Sports economics is a relatively new field of research that is experiencing rapid growth in the economics literature. The importance of the sports industry to economies coupled with the availability of financial and productivity data have made the study of sports economics a useful avenue for exploring research questions that have eluded mainstream economics fields. The main goal of this Special Issue of the International Journal of Financial Studies is to encourage theoretical and applied research in sports economics, which is of interest to both academics and practitioners. For this purpose, this Special Issue on “Sports Finance” invites papers on topics, such as, but not limited to, salary determination, ticket pricing, revenue sharing, salary caps, competitive balance, new stadium financing, rival league behavior, determinants of revenue, television and media, tournament prize structures, financial distress in professional sports, financial fair play, financial control of sports clubs, Third Party Ownership, financial efficiency in professional sports, budget constrains and sport performance, financial information of sports, ownership of professional sport clubs and Crowdfunding in sports. Papers on both professional and amateur sports are welcome.
