Confluences 3


The essays in this volume continue the examination, begun in Confluences 1 and continued in Confluences 2, of the exciting new writing that has emerged in Canada in the past few decades. Employing a variety of approaches and addressing the many concerns engaging their author-subjects—memory, history, and concentric identities; the subordination of women; and racism—this new body of writing collectively redefines and challenges the traditional idea of Canadian Literature.

  • “W H Hudson’s English Argentina and Pablo Urbanyi’s Argentine Canada.” –Hugh Hazelton
  • “Racial Re/Profiling: The Plays of Andrew Moodie.” –Leslie Sanders
