Description

The chapters in this volume, a groundbreaking work in the burgeoning field of hemispheric American studies, expand the horizons of Canadian and Québécois literatures, suggest alternative approaches to models centred on the United States, and analyze the risks and benefits of hemispheric approaches to Canada and Quebec. Revealing the connections among a broad range of Canadian, Québécois, American, Caribbean, Latin American, and diasporic literatures, the contributors critique the neglect of Canadian works in Hemispheric studies and show how such writing can be successfully integrated into an emerging area of literary inquiry. An important development in understanding the diversity of literatures throughout the western hemisphere, Canada and Its Americas reveals exciting new ways for thinking about transnationalism, regionalism, border cultures, and the literatures they produce.

Editorial Review

?Canada and Its Americas has set itself a twofold task: to interrogate the viability of hemispheric comparative approaches for the study of Canada, and to shift the dynamics within the field of inter-American studies which has hitherto been dominated by US-centred models of inquiry. Attentive to recent developments in inter-American studies, as well as the related fields of postcolonial and globalisation studies, the editors of the collection present a compelling argument in their introductory essay about the benefits to be gained from a transnational critical inquiry when carefully attuned to local specificities.? British Journal of Canadian Studies
