Employing a variety of approaches and addressing the many concerns engaging their author-subjects–memory, history, and concentric identities; the subordination of Indian women; the exploitation of Afro-Caribbean immigrants; the “nowarianism” of Indo-Caribbean Canadians; the legacy of Japanese internment during World War II; historical Black experience and meaningful aesthetics; Chinatown as geography, repository, and inspiration–this new body of writing collectively redefines and challenges the idea of Canadian Literature.
