Centered on the notion of culture as social identity, these essays provide an excellent introduction to current debates about Canadian culture. Contributors from a broad range of disciplines consider gender, technology, cultural ethnicity, and regionalism in the contexts of media, individual and national identity, language and cultural dissent. Specific topics include costume, body and dress in Canadian performance art; imaginary geographies in Quebec fiction; and multiculturalism, indigeneity and gender in prairie cinema.
