Cynthia Sugars and Eleanor Ty

Themes in Canadian Sociology

  • Growth area in literary studies. The field of cultural memory has been expanding in recent years, opening up new lines of critical inquiry.
  • Top scholarship. The volume editors and contributors are all among some of Canada's most eminent scholars of literatures.
  • Ambitious, wide-ranging scope. From mainstream to alternative texts that reveal aspects of how Canadians as a nation use the past to inform the present.
  • Colour illustrations. The collection is illustrated with a four-page colour insert, from Seth cartoons to unusual, little known visuals, giving unique artistic context to the essays.
  • Thought-provoking introduction. The exceptionally well-written and insightful introduction provides a range of path-breaking insights into how Canadians use their past.
