Canadian Studies at Strathclyde: A Digital Showcase

This showcase was designed to promote the growing research interest in Canadian Studies at the University of Strathclyde. The maps themselves were built using the geotemporal exhibit-building tool Neatline, as part of a project directed by Dr. Anouk Lang and supported by a grant from the Foundation for Canadian Studies in the UK.

Sarah Galletly: Work, Class, and Gender in Canadian Fiction, 1890s-1920s: This map illustrates the texts and authors studied in Sarah Galletly’s doctoral project, demonstrating how specific novels worked to intervene in, and partially construct, readers’ understanding of gender economies surrounding female labour in early C20th Canada.

Zhen Liu: The Cultural Legacy of Chinese-Canadian and Japanese-Canadian Literature, 1980-2010: This map broadly outlines the literary history of Chinese-Canadian and Japanese-Canadian literature with the aim of tracing the development of both the literature and diasporic subjectivities that Zhen Liu explores in her doctoral project.

Rachael Alexander: Domesticity, Gender, and Consumerism in Mainstream American and Canadian Magazines, 1920-1939: This map presents PhD candidate Rachael Alexander’s overview and brief publication history of three key English Canadian mass market magazines of the early C20th: Chatelaine, Mayfair, and the Canadian Home Journal.

Faye Hammill and Michelle Smith: Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture in Canada, 1925-1960: Drawing on the Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture in Canada, 1925-1960 project, this exhibit presents a spatially-focused timeline giving insight into six Canadian periodicals: Mayfair, La Revue Moderne, Canadian Home Journal, Chatelaine, La Revue Populaire, and Maclean’s.

Anouk Lang: Charting the Letters of Alan Crawley: This exhibit maps some of the letters between individuals associated with the mid C20th Canadian poetry periodical Contemporary Verse. This map is part of a larger project on Crawley being undertaken by Lang in association with Editing Modernism in Canada.
