Precarious Present / Promising Future?
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This collection of essays by feminist scholars from Canada and Israel explores the various aspects of Canadian identities and ethnic realities. A major source of tension and political conflict today, ethnicity and the problematics of identities inspire Canadian writers of all origins; to give a true picture of their society, they feel the urge to express their difference. The essays examine the voices of minority writers and of established writers from the two solitudes, whose views with regard to their identities and place in society highlight the specificity of the Canadian context. The book throws light on the paramount need to define ones position and identity in contrast to others, a need that may deny others the right to their own space. Foregrounding the diversity of perspectives characterising Canadas society, this volume will prove useful to students and researchers of Canadian Literature, Comparative Literature and the Social sciences.
