About this title


Resilient ideological assumptions, shifting economic priorities, and government policy in the postwar era influenced how northern culture was represented in popular Canadian imagery. In an enlightening exposure of Canada's cultural landscape, The Iconic North lays bare the relationship between settler nationbuilding and popular images of Aboriginal experience. Joan Sangster redirects current debates about the geopolitical prospects of the North by addressing how women and gender relations have played a key role in the history of northern development. She reveals how Indigenous and non-Indigenous women alike shaped gender, class, and political relationships in the circumpolar north – a region now commanding more of the world's attention.

Book Description:

Explores how the “modern” South crafted cultural images of a “primitive” North that reflected its own preconceived notions and social, political, and economic interests.
