This timely volume takes stock of the discipline of comparative literature and its theory and practice from a Canadian perspective.
It engages with the most pressing critical issues at the intersection of comparative literature and other areas of inquiry in the context of scholarship, pedagogy and academic publishing: bilingualism and multilingualism, Indigeneity, multiple canons (literary and other), the relationship between print culture and other media, the development of information studies, concerted efforts in digitization, and the future of the production and dissemination of knowledge.
The authors offer an analysis of the current state of Canadian comparative literature, with a dual focus on the issues of multilingualism in Canada's sociopolitical and cultural context and Canada's geographical location within the Americas.
It also discusses ways in which contemporary technology is influencing the way that Canadian literature is taught, produced, and disseminated, and how this affects its readings.
