Description

In the past few years, the concept of «liminality» has become a kind of pet theme within the discipline of Cultural Studies, lending itself to phenomena of transgression and systemic demarcation. This anthology employs theories of liminality to discuss Canada’s geographic and symbolic boundaries, taking its point of departure from the observation that «Canada» itself, as a cultural, political, and geographic entity, encapsulates elements of the «liminal.» The essays comprised in this volume deal with fragmented and contradictory practices in Canada, real and imagined borders, as well as contact zones, thresholds, and transitions in Anglo-Canadian and French-Canadian texts, discussing topics such as the U.S./Canadian border, migration, French-English relations, and encounters between First Nations and settlers.

Summary:

This anthology employs theories of liminality to discuss Canada’s geographic and symbolic boundaries, arguing that «Canada,» as a cultural, political, and geographic entity, encapsulates elements which qualify as «liminal.» The essays deal with real and imagined borders, as well as contact zones and thresholds in Anglo- and French-Canadian texts.
