Sport In Canada

This course offers an introduction to the history of sport and leisure in Canada and examines place of sport in the lives and minds of Canadians. Through lectures and class discussions we will consider the major themes of the course -- including the relationships between sport and gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, ethics, technology, community, and national identities -- and explore how Canada’s sporting heritage both draws upon and informs the way we understand Canadian society. The assignments are designed to improve critical thinking, research, and writing skills.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
