Summary

This engaging interdisciplinary collection seeks to shed light on narratives and research that challenge hockey’s norms, push its boundaries, and provide new ways of conceptualizing its role in North American culture. The volume’s editors use the metaphor of the neutral zone trap to explore how traditional ideologies and practices within the sport have contributed to exclusion and the misperception of various ways of existing in its community. The book includes both personal and scholarly accounts of agents of change–people, ideas, and events–that confront the challenges associated with making hockey a more progressive space. For hockey fans and experts alike.
