Cultural Identities in Canadian Literature/ Identités Culturell;1998, following p230
The article introduces a book featuring a collection of essays on the multiple aspects of cultural identities in literature from a postcolonial perspective. These essays are at the crossroads of Canadian cultural identity as they address gender, language, race, nationalism, and ethnicity. Thus, making this book is a valuable reference for researchers, scholars, and students who work in the expanding fields of cultural studies, minority or gender studies, and Canadian studies.
