Strangers in the Mirror

In and Out of the Mainstream of Culture in Canada


edited by Sanjay Talreja and Nurjehan Aziz

This collection of essays, consisting of personal insights, anecdotes, and analyses, looks at the representations of minorities in the cultural space of Canada: the national news media, advertising and commercials, school and university curricula, art and entertainment. The contributors come from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds and the definition of the term “minority” is itself examined. In the process, the authors consider the concept of Canada and being Canadian from different perspectives.

The contributors include:  Arun Mukherjee, York University; Fraser Sutherland, editor and writer; Robin Breon, University of Toronto; Michael Neumann, Trent University; Cecil Foster, novelist, University of Guelph; Tarek Fatah, Muslim Canadian Congress; Rozena Maart, University of Guelph.

"If we are interested in learning how to create a truly multicultural vision, reading and then re-reading this group of eloquent essays  would be an important start."
