New Publication: UNARRESTED ARCHIVES
A new publication from network co-convenor, Linda Morra:
UNARRESTED ARCHIVES: CASE STUDIES IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY CANADIAN WOMEN’S AUTHORSHIP. University of Toronto Press, December 2014.
“Calling upon the archives of Canadian writers E. Pauline Johnson (1861–1913), Emily Carr (1871–1945), Sheila Watson (1909–1998), Jane Rule (1931–2007), and M. NourbeSe Philip (1947– ), Linda M. Morra explores the ways in which women’s archives have been uniquely approached and shaped by socio-political forces. She also provides a framework for understanding the creative interventions these women staged to protect their records. Through these case studies, Morra traces the influence of institutions such as national archives and libraries, and regulatory bodies such as border service agencies on the creation, presentation, and preservation of women’s archival collections.”
