Kait Pinder has received a Harrison McCain Emerging Scholar Award for “Feminism and Canadian Literature,” a book that she is co-authoring with Andrea Beverley (Mount Allison University). Part of Routledge’s introduction to Canadian literature series, this book will introduce students to the historical contexts, theoretical approaches, and multiple genres of feminist writing in Canada. While much of the historical scholarship on Canadian feminisms centers white women, feminisms in Canada have always been undertaken from multiple perspectives and lived experiences. Taking an intersectional approach, the book emphasizes the plurality of feminisms in which writers have participated over the last two centuries and underlines the connections between literature and activism, thus also illuminating art’s impact in and response to the real world.
