Julia M. Wright’s (Dalhousie) book Representing the National Landscape in Irish Romanticism is now available, with Syracuse UP. Mary Helen Thuente calls it “a major contribution to Irish literary and intellectual history.”  James Kelley, editor of Ireland and Romanticism, writes: “the book combines incredible archival research with theoretical nous. It deals with many texts that have not been substantially written about before, and draws fascinating links between texts previously not fully noticed.”

Daniel Coleman’s (McMaster) essay “Broken Pine” is now available in Hamilton Arts & Letters. Nadine Attewell, in her article “The Return of the Past” from Stages #0: The Banff Report has this to say: “In his essay ‘Broken Pine’, Daniel Coleman narrates the entwined histories of economic, environmental and colonial despoliation in the region that is the site of the present-day Hamilton. Regeneration, he implies, must involve decolonisation, the future sought in an opening to the disturbance of a past that, insofar as settler colonialism endures in Canada, is not really past at all.”
