Ten years, ten authors, ten critics.

The Canadian Literature Centre/Centre de littérature canadienne reaches into its ten-year archive of Brown Bag Lunch readings to sample some of the most diverse and powerful voices in contemporary Canadian literature.

This anthology offers readers samples from some of Canada’s most exciting writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Each selection is introduced by a brief essay, serving as a point of entry into the writer’s work. From the east coast of Newfoundland to Kitamaat territory on British Columbia’s central coast, there is a story for everyone, from everywhere. True to Canada’s multilingual and multicultural heritage, these ten writers come from diverse ethnicities and backgrounds, and work in multiple languages, including English, French, and Cree.

CLC Studies Volume 3:

Inhabiting Memory in Canadian Literature / Habiter la mémoire dans la littérature canadienne

Dr. Benjamin Authers, Maïté Snauwaert & Daniel Laforest, editors

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 collection will be welcomed by readers and critics of Canadian literature.

Contributors: Albert Braz, Samantha Cook, Jennifer Delisle, Lise Gaboury-Diallo, Smaro Kamboureli, Janne Korkka, André Lamontagne, Margaret Mackey, Sherry Simon, Pamela Sing, Camille van der Marel, and Erin Wunker.

Notice2ISBN: 978-1-55195-257-4

Price: $15.00 CAD

Texts in English and French, includes biographical references.

This is Volume 1 in the CLC Studies Series, its purpose to contribute to debates around literary production in Canada in a spirit of philosophical and theoretical openness, bilingual commitment and genuine curiosity about what makes the literatures of Canada tick. Like the diversity of methodological approaches, we hope that the attempt to treat the literatures of Canada as linguistically and culturally complex has produced a volume that does justice to the depth of writing found within Canada as well as the multifaceted quality of its international connections.
