Writing

A few projects I’ve worked on are making, or have made, their way into the world.

Recently, the Champlain Society shared a short piece I wrote about Justine Blainey. This documentary analysis looks at a letter to Blainey from her lawyer about a telephone conversation with a hockey official. Part of a larger project I’m chipping away at situating Blainey’s case in Canada in the 1980s.

In March the catalogue for Hockey, an exhibition I co-curated, was released. Much of the credit for this beautiful book goes to Dr. Jennifer Anderson. If you did not get a chance to see the exhibition in person this will give you a sense of the content.

Anderson and I have also put together an edited collection called Hockey: Challenging Canada’s Game that will be released next spring. The book was a great opportunity to work with many of the scholars that inspired the exhibition.

Lastly, Gurze recently invited me to submit an entry on Obesity Stigma for their resource catalogue of “eating disorders.” While I don’t think obesity is an eating disorder, I was happy to submit this short encyclopedia entry explaining the problem of stigma to health practitioners and the public.
