Adjacencies: Minority Writing in Canada
Licia Canton, Domenic A. Beneventi, Lianne Moyes
Independent Publishe, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 256 pages
Canada has often been described as a patchwork of cultural and linguistic communities that continually intersect with one another in interesting and provocative ways. This collection of essays provides a forum in which ethnicity and literature are explored from a broad range of critical perspectives including feminism, psychoanalysis, cinema, cultural studies, history, gender and native studies. They do so by addressing the many ways in which minority writers not only create sense of community and ethnic specificity but also open avenues of discourse to adjacent communities. Offering readings of such diverse writers as Austin Clarke, Caterina Edwards, Mary di Michele, Kristjana Gunnars, Nadine Ltaif, Robert Majzels, Michael Ondaatje, F.G. Paci, Marguerite-A. Primeau, Régine Robin and Aritha van Herk, this collection discusses and debates the issues pertinent to contemporary ethnic/minority studies in Canada.
