The Eye of the Master: Figures of the Québécois Colonial Imaginary (Carleton Library Series/McGill Queen’s University Press, 2023) is Professor Jennifer Henderson’s English translation of political philosopher Dalie Giroux’s award-winning book, L’Oeil du maître.

To hear Professor Henderson and Professor Giroux discuss the challenges of presenting to an English-speaking audience, the book’s critique of the coloniality of the contemporary Québécois political imaginary, listen to this podcast made by Martha Attridge Bufton, Interdisciplinary Studies Librarian.

Professor Henderson also has an essay appearing in the new collection, Land/Relations: Possibilities of Justice in Canadian Literatures, edited by Smaro Kamboureli and Larissa Lai (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2023). The essay, “Neoliberal Gothic, Settler Social Imaginaries, and the Case for Decolonization on Two Fronts” tracks the generic constraints on public discourse about Residential Schools as well as the production of knowledge about Indigenous communities according to a binary scheme of damage and resilience.
