Confluences 2: Essays on the New Canadian Literature

edited by Nurjehan Aziz

The essays in this volume continue the examination, begun in Confluences 1, of the exciting new writing that has emerged in Canada in the past few decades. Employing a variety of approaches and addressing the many concerns engaging their author-subjects—memory, history, and concentric identities; the subordination of Indian women; the exploitation of Afro-Caribbean immigrants; the “nowarianism” of Indo-Caribbean Canadians; the legacy of Japanese internment during World War II; historical Black experience and meaningful aesthetics; Chinatown as geography, repository, and inspiration—this new body of writing collectively redefines and challenges the idea of Canadian Literature.






Nurjehan Aziz is the editor of Her Mother’s Ashes: Stories by South Asian Women in Canada and the United States, and more recently The Relevance of Islamic Identity in Canada. She is the publisher at Mawenzi House.
