Canadian Literature call for papers on Science and Canadian Literature
September 13, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT
Science & Canadian Literature is a special issue dedicated to the subject of science in/and Canadian poetry and prose.
In the three decades since the last science-themed issue of Canadian Literature appeared, much has changed in both literary and scientific circles. New literary theories have come to shape our critical conversations, new Canadian authors have emerged, publishing has been fundamentally changed with the advent of the Internet; at the same time, sheep have been cloned, food has been genetically modified, computers have shrunk to pocket size. And neither of these circles exists in isolation: each has affected the other, with differences that have made a difference (to borrow the language of ecologist Gregory Bateson) across the disciplinary boundaries.
