Sports, Nations, and Utopia in Canadian Literature and Culture When we enter a sporting arena as fans or when we play a game of pick-up football, we expect to be surrounded by what Johan Huizinga called the ‘magic circle’ of play; we expect to experience freedom from quotidian troubles and even the tyranny of regular clock-time. Philosopher Bernard Suits even argued that ‘Utopian existence is fundamentally concerned with game-playing.’ In this talk, I consider Canadian literature and, more broadly, culture in terms of sports, utopian ideals, and ideas of nationhood. Canada’s most famous story is surely Roch Carrier’s nostalgic “The Hockey Sweater.” Would the same story have enjoyed such acceptance if it were about curling or baseball? Unlikely. After providing an overview of types of Canadian sports literature, I consider the roles individual sports (can) have in the game of performing nationhood.
