We are pleased to announce the arrival of Canadian Literature, Issue 242, Emerging Scholars, Redux. Christine Kim writes in her editorial:
Over the past few years, there have been many debates in Canadian literature about the continued marginalization of BIPOC, LGBTQI, and female voices. These questions about power, and perhaps more importantly about empowerment, have continued to demand our attention during these pandemic times. I am interested in looking closely at the multiplicity of emerging voices and forces and asking how they capture the attention of various audiences. Or to put it another way, how do the emergent and its readers come to form a structure of feeling? And for whom? This question of emergent intimacies is especially pertinent given how the imbalances of social power have become even more pronounced over the past year.
