            For more than half a century, the field of Canadian Studies has attracted North American scholars of the highest caliber to examine Canada: its distinctive social makeup, its fascinating colonial and postcolonial history, its intriguing literature, its political structure, and it...s changing place in world. Scholars, Missionaries, and Counter-Imperialists: The American Review of Canadian Studies, 1971-2021 traces the birth and growth of that field by reproducing 15 exemplary articles published in the pages of that journal from its establishment until the present day. For five decades, the American Review of Canadian Studies (ARCS) acted as a bellwether for the field, revealing its strengths, projecting new directions and inquiries, and reflecting the changing topics and methods that scholars used to study Canada. This book captures the history of that field in one robust volume. Carefully selected by the co-editors of ARCS, the chapters in this edited volume are prefaced by an introductory essay that assesses the accomplishments of the field and brief chapter introductions that place them into context.

            Corpus-Aided Ecolinguistics introduces key research concepts, principles and techniques in ecolinguistics and corpus-aided discourse study, answering foundational questions for researchers new to the discipline and asserting the urgent need to expand its scope. Breaking new groun...d, the book analyzes under-explored environmental discourses that have a tangible impact on ecological wellbeing and sustainability by perpetuating harmful attitudes, practices and ideologies. Chapters present in-depth case studies, including the perceptions of single-use disposable products in contemporary consumer culture, the semantic prosody of the word 'water' in national contexts and the use of humor in reports on animal escapes from slaughterhouses. They draw on techniques such as concordances, collocations, n-grams and keyword analysis to show in each case that ecological degradation and crisis have become normalized, and even trivialized, in popular discourse. By applying the most effective tools from corpus linguistics to a diverse range of environmental discourses, this book makes a significant contribution to advancing the field of ecolinguistics.

            Filling a gap in what we know about medical writing in England in the 100+ years after the advent of the Great Mortality , this book calls attention to a discourse that privileges illness narratives, strategies of self-care, and the voices of poets, patients, and practitioners. W...orking from the assumption that there is a discernible link between catastrophic disease events and an upsurge in writing about death and the health of the body, this book recognizes the formation of a discourse written for a non-academic audience that provides information on how to interpret symptoms of disease, how to devise effective treatments, and how to implement regimens of health believed to be preventative. When read in conjunction with medical treatises, plague tractates, and verse remedies, literary narratives disclose an experience of illness that other genres of medical writing lack, thus enabling us to see the kinship between poetry and the healing arts. Deploying an interpretive method from 21st-century medical humanities programs, as Rita Charon's practice of narrative medicine has, we learn how to diagnose a text as if we were diagnosing a body both by observing its symptoms and by listening closely to the stories of patients. This study brings the storytelling practices of poets, patients, and physicians in the midst of a medieval public health crisis to the attention of a 21st-century audience. In doing so, it asks these key questions: How can we recuperate the voices of those afflicted by illness in medieval texts when we have no direct testimony? How do we interpret stories told by patients in narratives mediated by others? Where do women factor into the shaping of a medical canon? How does medical writing intersect with religious belief and memorial practices governed by the Church? How do regimens of health benefit a population in the throes of an epidemic?

            This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the use of microethnographic discourse analysis for researching, theorizing, and reconceptualizing the uses of language and literacy in educational settings. The authors apply an ethnographic perspective to discourse analysis to ...emphasize how teachers and students use spoken and written language to construct knowledge, opportunities for learning, and social relationships. The authors demonstrate how microethnographic discourse analysis at different levels of scale can provide deeper understandings into the nuanced, complex social interactions and relationships that exist in and across educational contexts, including meaning-making, literacy practices, power relations, and the social construction of personhood. Each chapter offers philosophically and theoretically grounded principles for using microethnographic discourse analysis and example cases that reflect the principles presented. Ideal for researchers, teacher educators, and teachers, this essential text on discourse analysis, language, and literacy provides a grounding to further examine critical questions challenging educators.

            This study examines the figure of the anxious male breadwinner as he is incarnated in Arthur Miller's most celebrated plays and as he resurfaces in different guises throughout American drama from the 1950s to the present day. It offers a compelling analysis of gender dynamics - s...taunchly homosocial, vaguely or overtly misogynistic, anxiously homophobic - and of the legacy of this often sexually troubled figure in the works of other American dramatists right up to the present day. The book then proceeds to examine this same figure as he appears in the plays of Tennessee Williams, and then in the later 20th century writers Lorraine Hansberry, David Mamet, August Wilson and Sam Shepard, who reposition him in more racially and economically marginalized settings. From there it turns to the work of Tony Kushner, Paula Vogel, and the collaborators Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori, who shift their focus to the children who seek to free themselves from his clutches and forge their own, gleefully queer identities. Finally, the last chapter concerns the contemporary Black dramatists Suzan-Lori Parks, Jackie Sibblies Drury and Jeremy O. Harris, whose plays move us from anxious masculinity to anxious whiteness and speak directly to the current moment. Threaded throughout the book is the argument that the gendered anxieties exhibited by the anxious male breadwinner are the very ones invoked with such success by Donald Trump.

            James Joyce and Photography is the first book to explore in-depth James Joyce's engagement with the art of photography. Photography is evident throughout Joyce's texts, from his narrator's furtive photographic framing in Silhouettes (c. 1897), to the aggressively-minded snapshots... captured by the 'Tulloch-Turnbull girl with her coldblood kodak' in Finnegans Wake. Through an exploration of Joyce's manuscripts and photographic and newspaper archival material, as well as the full range of Joyce's major works, this book sheds new light on his relationship with the visual medium, both in a personal capacity and as a means of professional promotion. In taking Joyce's intention in Dubliners to 'betray the soul of that hemiplegia or paralysis which many consider a city' as key to his engagement with visual culture, this work shows how photography in Joyce's writing occupies a particular dual position, shifting between the stasis of portraiture and the kinesis of film.
