9780920661253: Closed Entrances: Canadian Culture and Imperialism

Rethinking notions of empire and outpost and claims of universal genius in the teaching of literature in Canada ... Literature as cultural imperialism ... Racism and eruocentrism in the literary reinforcement of domination ... Beyond the reactivity of writing back to the Centre ... Fort culture and education and the Canadian state and the normalzing of imperialism .. Beyond the hushed gloom of the Royal Ontaro Museum's austere sense of permanence where a world of masks and disquietude lurks...
