This collection of essays examines how the sense of crisis that occasionally seems to overwhelm us directs and transforms Canadian and Quebec writings in English and French, and conversely, how literature and criticism set out to counterbalance the social, economic, and ideological insecurities we live in.

Ce recueil de textes étudie les manières dont le sentiment de crise qui peut parfois sembler nous submerger, oriente et transforme les écrits canadiens et québécois d’expressions anglaise et française, et inversement, comment la littérature et la critique s’efforcent de contrebalancer les insécurités sociales, économiques et idéologiques dans lesquelles nous vivons.

Ursula Mathis-Moser is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Romance Languages and Director of the Center for Canadian Studies at the University of Innsbruck.
