Inhabiting Memory in Canadian Literature / Habiter la mémoire dans la littérature canadienne
Featuring seven English-language essays, five French-language essays, and a bilingual introduction, this collection examines the cultural work of space and memory in Canada and Canadian literature, and encourages readers to investigate Canada within its regional, national, and global contexts. It also invites us to recognize local intersections so easily overlooked, yet so important. The diverse critical approaches of this collection reveal and probe the unities and fractures in national understanding, telling stories of otherness and marginality, of dis-location and un-belonging.

"This excellent scholarly collection includes seven essays in English and five in French on various facets of the relationship between space and memory. ... The book will be of interest not only to scholars of Canadian literature, but also to those of postcolonial and diasporic literatures. ... [This] book serves as a valuable challenge to scholars in both languages to deepen our understanding of Canada’s literary past in both ways. "- Laurel Ryan
