Many of Canada’s most prominent Aboriginal writers are Métis, but their work is usually examined in the broader context of First Nations literature rather than within the more specific matrix of Métis culture. This special session intends to redress that problem by focusing on writing by Métis authors and by examining that work within Métis cultural contexts. Papers may discuss individual works, and/or they may examine other issues such as: Métis history, Métis identity, cultural cohesion, colonial definitions of authenticity, métissage, and Métis nationalism.
Proposals of up to 500 words, along with a 50 word abstract and a short biography, should be submitted to Warren Cariou via email by January 15.
