Synopsis: Despite Canada’s vast wilderness and outdoor heritage, the history of sport hunting remains at the periphery of academic thought. Hunting for Empire writes sport hunting into Canadian scholarship and provides a starting point for further study.
Hunting for Empire offers a cultural history of sport and imperialism as revealed through 19th-century British big-game hunting and exploration narratives from the western interior of Rupert’s Land. Greg Gillespie integrates critical perspectives from cultural history, cultural studies, literary criticism, and cultural geography to analyze the themes of authorship, sport, science, and nature. Blending these interdisciplinary perspectives, he produces a unique theoretical lens to study narratives of early imperial sport hunting that prevailed before the rise of western Canada’s hunting tourism industry in the late 19th century.
Sharply written and evocatively illustrated, Hunting for Empire will appeal to students and scholars of culture, sport, geography, and history, and to general readers interested in stories of hunting, empire, and the Canadian wilderness.
About the Author: Greg Gillespie is an assistant professor in the Department of Communications, Popular Culture, and Film at Brock University.
