Introduction: Southern Ontario is a focal point in Canada for the study of the Olympic Games both in their original development at Olympia, Greece and in their modern transformation from Athens, 1896 to Athens, 2004. The Olympic Round Table at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo has alternated yearly with the International Symposium for Olympic Research sponsored by the International Centre for Olympic Studies at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario bringing together students, scholars, athletes and organizers of the Olympics Games. The Canadian Academic Institute in Athens, with home office at the University of Toronto and research facilities in Athens, Greece is preparing for the Athens 2004 Games by developing a Media Ring to support the information needs of media in Canada and elsewhere as they gear up for the upcoming Games in Greece, as well as other information resources for schools and interested visitors. Onward to the Olympics will bring together scholars and students of Olympic history to focus on major accomplishments of these unique athletic festivals, as we look to the future, to Athens in 2004 and to the place of Olympic athletics in the 21st century.
Call for Papers: Papers are invited on topics within the purview of the history of the Olympic Games, including, for example, gender issues, commercialism, political interference, idealism and spectacle.
