The 2021 Niagara Canada Games provides an exciting “living laboratory” of sorts. There are all kinds of research and scholarship opportunities we can pursue that will shed light on a wide range of economic, political, social and cultural topics not only directly related to sport but relevant for society in general.
In the time leading up to the Games, we will be posting a series of articles, Q&As, profiles and other material on research and scholarship related to the Games. The series will include work already being done as well as ideas for future work. We are excited that Brock can take the lead on creating the first “academic” Canada Games.
