New Publication by Linda Morra: On the Other Side(s) of 150

Dr. Linda MorraDr. Linda Morra of the Department of English has co-edited a new monograph entitled On the Other Side(s) of 150: Untold Stories and Critical Approaches to History, Literature, and Identity in Canada, published by Wilfrid Laurier Press in April 2021. This book was developed following the Canada 150 conference Untold Stories of the Past 150 Years supported by a SSHRC Connection Grant (2017).

On the Other Side(s) of 150 explores the different literary, historical, and cultural legacies of Canada and asks vital questions about the ways that histories and stories have been suppressed. This monograph tackles issues of violence and systemic racism against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

Dr. Morra’s books have been recognized by several distinctions. On May 31, 2021, she was awarded the 2020 Gabrielle Roy Prize (English section) by the Association for Canadian and Quebec Literatures for her book Moving Archives. Each year, this prize honours the best work of Canadian literary criticism published in English.

More information about this new monograph is available on Wilfrid Laurier University Press.
