Spring 2018: Place and Displacement

TCR 3.35 (Spring 2018), an editorial collaboration between Fenn Stewart, Matea Kulić, and Catriona Strang, considers place and displacement in the unceded lands and waters sometimes known as Vancouver et al. Where are we? How did this here get here? And what does it demand of us? This special issue, funded in part by a City of Vancouver Special Project Grant, includes poetry by Mercedes Eng, Chelene Knight, T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss, and many others; interviews with Si’yam Lee Maracle, Larry Grant, Maxine Gadd, Trudy Rubenfeld, and Rhoda Rosenfeld; a feature on the restoration of the Blue Cabin by Jeremy Borsos; multimedia work by Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill, Karin Lee, and Fabiola Carranza; photography by Hiromi Goto and Clint Burnham; collaborative contributions by N.O.P.E. and the Belvedere Residents; an essay by Yoko Urata on Japanese-Canadian history in Kitsilano; and reviews by Meredith Quartermain and Michael Turner.
