How Canadians Communicate III

Beaty, BartBriton, DerekFilax, GloriaSullivan, Rebecca (Hrsg.) | Athabasca University Press


What does Canadian popular culture say about the construction and negotiation of Canadian national identity? This third volume of How Canadians Communicate describes the negotiation of popular culture across terrains where national identity is built by producers and audiences, government and industry, history and geography, ethnicities and citizenships.Canada does indeed have a popular culture distinct from other nations. How Canadians Communicate III gathers the country’s most inquisitive experts on Canadian popular culture to prove its thesis.

“The book is well-conceived and the articles offer compelling reading and dynamic viewpoints that would make for a fine addition to Canadian Studies and popular culture courses. [Beaty and Sullivan] effectively demonstrate that popular culture can be a means of communication on a broader scale when context is taken into consideration. By setting the stage for the reader in their discussions of how popular culture should be considered, they are able to subtly remind the reader that context matters just as much as content.”
