Christine Bold’s (Guelph) The Frontier Club: Popular Westerns and Cultural Power, 1880-1924 was published earlier this year, with Oxford UP. CHOICE calls the book: “Superbly researched and written… It is refreshing to see women, African Americans, and Native Americans getting a fair shake in Bold’s tale, and to watch her pull back the curtain on the racism and brutality that informed the era… Bold vividly restores vanishing historical impact of Westerns for the benefit of contemporary readers. Summing Up: Essential.”
Russell J.A. Kilbourn (Wilfrid Laurier) and Eleanor Ty’s (Wilfrid Laurier) edited collection entitled The Memory Effect: The Remediation of Memory in Literature and Film, has been recently published with Wilfrid Laurier UP. “The Memory Effect is a collection of essays on the status of memory-individual and collective, cultural and transcultural—in contemporary literature, film, and other visual media. Contributors look at memory’s representation, adaptation, translation, and appropriation, as well as its mediation and remediation. Memory’s irreducibly constructed nature is explored, even as its status is reaffirmed as the basis of both individual and collective identity.”
