Abstract (English)

"Creative Subversions explores how whiteness and Indigeneity are articulated through iconic images of Canadian identity -- and the contradictory and contested meanings they evoke. These benign, even kitschy, images, she argues, are haunted by ideas about race, masculinity, and sexuality that circulated during the formative years of Anglo-Canadian nationhood." -- Site web de l'éditeur.
