about this book

deutsch english

Despite many adversities – to name only the Harper administration´s non-funding policy of multi-national research programmes – International Canadian Studies have become a backbone of North American studies. Numerous publications by European Canadianists, not to mention others, in the previous years bear witness to this success story. The present volume takes it up and exemplifies the unbridled variety of research fields within Canadian Studies. Originating in a selection of papers given in a series of talks organised by the Szczecin Canadian Studies Group at the Institute of English of Szczecin University , the collection provides the reader with an insight into literature, culture, politics and diverse research methods in contemporary research on Canada. Among the aspects highlighted we find Indigenous Relationality, Indigenous Autobiographies, Canadian Children´s Fiction, Canada and the North, Intersectionality, Food in Canadian History and Literature, Anti-War Novels between 1929 – 1958, Language Policy in Quebec and US-Canada political relations.

The volume brings together reputed experts in their particular fields on the one hand, and young scholars at the beginning of their careers on the other. They all have in common a fresh focus on the thematic variety of Canadian studies.
