Joint Book Launch

Peter Thompson, Nights Below Foord Street:
Literature and Popular Culture in Post-Industrial
Nova Scotia (McGill Queen’s UP, 2020)

Nights Below Foord Street offers a lively
account of how Nova Scotian literature and
culture depict a messy and unfinished process
of deindustrialization. Peter Thompson is an
Associate Professor in the School of Canadian
and Indigenous Studies at Carleton University

Jody Mason, Home Feelings: Liberal Citizenship
and the Canadian Reading Camp Movement
(McGill Queen’s UP, 2019)

Home Feelings, a critical history of the reading
camp movement, argues that literature, literacy,
and citizenship took on new and contested
meanings in early twentieth-century Canada
as they came together in the context of the
nation’s frontier labour camps. Jody Mason is an
Associate Professor in the Department of English
at Carleton University.
