Changing Identities: Reading and Writing Ourselves
Stanley Fogel, Lynette Thoman
Canadian Scholars' Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Self-Help - 211 pages
Fogel and Thoman have compiled this collection with essays drawn from a variety of sources. The focus is popular culture, the energy is bold and innovative. The writing is at once engaging, honest, hard-hitting, and provocative. Essayists include Wayson Choy, Sheila Delany, Mavis Gallant, Daniel Richler, and Witold Rybczynski. The book presents stimulating discussions about gender, race, sexuality, the media, style, literature, sports, and travel. All of the writers in the collection examine and comment on aspects of social and cultural life in ways that are engaging and 'self-identifying'. These essays are fresh and original, and Changing Identities is an essential addition to any cultural studies curriculum.
