Using the debate over a new arena for downtown Edmonton as a starting point, this course will examine the significance of boosterism to the city’s historical development; the business of hockey; the importance of hockey to Edmonton’s identity including women’s and Indigenous sports; and an exploration of urban politics.  We will have former councillor, Linda Sloan McCullough, as a guest speaker.
