Reginald Wiebe and Dorothy Woodman engage literature in comics studies, the medical humanities, and graphic medicine to explore representations of this disease in Marvel, focusing on four character case studies: Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Thor, and Deadpool.

    With Numinous Seditions, celebrated poet and essayist Tim Lilburn investigates aspects of an interiority appropriate to a time and world irrevocably altered by climate change. How will we be under these new conditions? What inner dispositions might sustain and help us bear the new sorrows of the climate crisis? The book draws from retrieved elements of the West’s almost forgotten contemplative tradition in its Platonic, Islamic, Christian, and Zoharic forms. It also ... [READ MORE]

Alice Neikirk conducted fieldwork with Bhutanese who fled Bhutan, resided in camps in Nepal, and finally settled in the vastly different culture of Australia. She observes that in accepting the role of humanitarian subjects, refugees must abandon their role as contributors to the nation state and become satisfied... [READ MORE]

    All the World’s a Mall details a whirlwind world tour in five stops: Edmonton, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, and Casablanca, chosen because they are home to some of the biggest malls on the planet. Built to contain over-sized leisure and sales activities, these disproportionate shopping malls are cities within cities, wonderlands where visitors come from afar to do everything: walk, eat, sleep, watch, swim, ski, skate, ride, photograph, and, of course, buy.

    This diverse collection is the first book in which a broad range of Canadian health care workers from across the country recount their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some pieces reflect on the strange pertinence of today’s headlines with those of the past; others use humour, art, and the power of narrative to offer a glimpse of how disorienting it is when to help is to put oneself at risk, when care itself is redefined from moment to moment. The COVID Journals... [READ MORE]

    In Seeking a Research-Ethics Covenant in the Social Sciences, Will C. van den Hoonaard chronicles the negative influence that medical research-ethics frameworks have had on social science research-ethics policies. He argues that the root causes of the current ethics disorder in the social sciences are the aggressive audit culture in universities and the privilege accorded to medical research ethics, which overrides ethical issues in all other disciplines.

    Leaving Other People Alone reads contemporary North American Jewish fiction about Israel/Palestine through an anti-Zionist, diasporic lens. Aaron Kreuter argues that since Jewish diasporic fiction played a major role in establishing the centroperipheral relationship between Israel and the diaspora, it therefore also has the potential to challenge, trouble, and ultimately rework this relationship. Kreuter suggests that any fictional work that concerns itself with Israel/Pal... [READ MORE]

    An Anthology of Monsters by Cherie Dimaline, award-winning author of The Marrow Thieves, is the tale of an intricate dance with life-long anxiety.

Using examples from her books, from her mère, and from her own late night worry sessions, Dimaline choreographs a deeply personal narrative about all the ways in which we tell stories. She reveals how to ... [READ MORE]

    In Making Wonderful, Martin M. Tweedale tells how an ideology in the West energized an economic expansion that has led to ecological disaster. He takes us back to the rise of cities and autocratic rulers, analyzing how respect for custom and tradition gave way to the dominance of top-down rational planning and organization. Then in response came a highly attractive myth of an eventual future rid of all of humankind's ills, one in which life would be “made wonderful.&... [READ MORE]

Orbiting through a mother’s death, a grandbaby’s birth, and a pandemic summer, these poems loop and fragment in expansive and empathetic ways. The title poem locates a settler voice revisiting Treaties 6 and 7 and the Métis lands of her Alberta childhood, while the ... [READ MORE]
