Abstract (English)

In an examination of the mnemonic dimensions of Canadian postmodernism, Cheetham focuses on the relation of postmodernism to the historical past and memory in defining a subject in works of art; the author also considers the social and political uses of memory, giving special attention to the dimensions of play and gender. Hutcheon's essay maps the territory of Canadian postmodernism and argues for a politicized understanding of postmodernist theory and practice. Biographical notes on the authors and 35 artists. Index of names. Bibl. 3 p.
