    Topics range from fossil remnants on Axel Heiberg Island to collaborative tourism planning in the Yukon; from the influence of sea-ice and ocean circulation on arctic climate, to the differences between Inuit healing and western medicine. Yet, there is a common thread that links all of these papers. It is a place. It is the North. The importance of such a perspective is often lost in an academic world that rewards specialization by emphasizing expertise in a narrow field. But... [READ MORE]

    In 2005, 1.2 million children in Canada were living below the poverty level. This represents a 20 percent increase since 1989, the year that the federal government unanimously passed a resolution to eliminate child poverty by 2000. To understand the state of children's welfare, Child Poverty and the Canadian Welfare State reviews Canadian social policy reform, and discovers that the welfare of poor children is a casualty of the war on the welfare state launched by opposing po...

    The history of Branching Out, Canada’s first national magazine of second-wave feminism, is the surprising story of an upstart magazine published on the prairies that was read from coast to coast. It is an Edmonton-based story of political activism, feminist community-building, and survival in the cultural industries. When it ceased publication in 1980, Branching Out had reached more readers than any other Canadian second-wave feminist periodical. Feminist Acts is an eye... [READ MORE]

    The phrase "child labour" carries negative undertones in today's society. However, only a century ago on the Canadian Prairies, youngsters laboured alongside their parents' working the land, cleaning stovepipes, and chopping wood. By shouldering their share of the chores, these children learned the domestic and manual labour skills needed for life on a Prairie family farm. Rollings-Magnusson uses historic research, photographs, and personal anecdotes to describe the... [READ MORE]

    Knowings and Knots presents a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the methodology of research-creation and asks how those who make knowledge think about and value it. Not just a method, but a site of ongoing contestation and experimentation around what counts as knowledge, research-creation is a meeting place of academia, artistic creation, and the wider public. The contributors argue that academic institutions and funders must recognize research-creation as innovative... [READ MORE]
