"Cultural Grammars of Nation, Diaspora, and Indigeneity in Canada" considers how the terms of critical debate in literary and cultural studies in Canada have shifted with respect to matters of race, nation, and difference. In asking how Indigenous and diasporic interventions have remapped these debates, the contributors argue there is a new "cultural grammar" at work and attempt to sketch out some of the ways that it operates.

Cultural Grammars of Nation, Diaspora, and Indigeneity in Canada is a valuable contribution to an emerging discourse within the field of Indigenous Studies. It furthers a multi-disciplinary dialogue by exploring the relationship between transnationalism, diaspora, and indigeneity in Canada, while interrogating the value of postcolonial theory as a lens for working through these topics. With the objective of '[making] discernible the language rules governing our critical choices and the conceptual framework we mobilize, consciously or not' (9), Cultural Grammars challenges existing notions of home, nostalgia, and authenticity, and explores the linkages between the respective histories that shape transnational and Indigenous identities.... Cultural Grammars is highly sophisticated, intensely theoretical, and can be difficult to apply across disciplines on account of the specificity of some of the literary analysis; however.... there are moments of insight in each chapter that encourage a broad array of readers to be self-reflexive of the nomenclature and theoretical frameworks employed in their own work.''--Gabrielle Legault "BC Studies: The British Columbian Quarterly "
