The Canadian Studies Network is pleased to announce the winner of the 2020 prize for the Best Edited Collection in Canadian Studies.
The jury for the Canadian Studies Network Prize for the Best Edited Collection is pleased to announce this year’s winner, The Nature of Canada, edited by Colin M. Coates and Graeme Wynn, published by On Point Press, a UBC Press imprint. The Jury commends this collection of essays for taking up iconic Canadian Studies materials, authors, and issues and approaching them in novel and compelling ways. This inter/multidisciplinary, wide-ranging, and topical compilation spans from the environment to Indigenous Canada, from Innis to Frye, from the humanities fields of literature and history to the social science fields of economics and politics. The chapters are richly diverse, yet woven together with a common set of critical inquiries and creatively integrate photography and narrative references. This collection ably represents both the roots and the growth of Canadian Studies scholarship.
The Jury gave an honourable mention to Unmooring the Komagata Maru: Charting Colonial Trajectories, edited by Dr. Rita Kaur Dhamoon, Dr. Davina Bhandar, Dr. Renisa Mawani and Dr. Satwinder Kaur Bains, published by UBC Press.
