Place and Replace: Essays on Western Canada

Place and Replace: Essays on Western Canada, edited by Adele Perry, Esyllt W. Jones, and Leah Morton. This is a collection of recent interdisciplinary research into Western Canada that calls attention to the multiple political, social, and cultural labours performed by the concept of “place.” The book continues a long-standing tradition of situating questions of place at the centre of analyses of Western Canada’s cultures, pasts, and politics, while making clear that place is never stable, universal, or static. The essays here confirm the interests and priorities of Western Canadian scholarship that have emerged over the past forty years and remind us of the importance of Indigenous peoples, dispossession, and colonialism; of migration, race, and ethnicity; of gender and women’s experiences; of the impact of the natural and built environment; and the impact of politics and the state. UMP. ISBN: 978-0-88755-740-8, $29.95, 6″ x 9″, 420 pp. History, Literary Criticism.
