On July 2, 2020, Christine Kim officially became the new editor of Canadian Literature. We look forward to the new directions the journal will be taking under her guidance over the next five years, and congratulate her once more on the appointment. Welcome to our new editor, Christine Kim!
Christine follows in the footsteps of Laura Moss. In July of this year, Laura finalized seventeen years of relentless dedication to the work of Canadian Literature–eleven years as reviews editor and six-and-a-half years as acting editor and then editor in chief. In her final editorial for the journal, “111 Days of COVID and Reading,” she writes about her last day at the office:
And now I am done. I have such mixed emotions: grateful to have had the opportunity to work on such a publication for so long, very proud of the work we accomplished, sad to be leaving the CL team, ready to move on, relieved not to have the weight on my shoulders, nostalgic already. All good things, etc. Bye CanLit.
We at the journal could not be more grateful to Laura for all she has done to keep our publication running. Now acting as Associate Dean of Students in the Faculty of Arts at the University of British Columbia, we wish her the best in all her future endeavours. Goodbye Laura, you will be missed.
