Major Contours of the History of the Book in Canada

Monday, March 9, 2015

Eli MacLaren, Assistant Professor of Canadian Literature and Book History in the English department at McGill University, began the 2015 Katz Memorial Lecture with two questions: what constitutes Canadian literature, and at what point did Canadian literature truly establish itself? He examined the works and lives of Samuel de Champlain, Nathaniel A. Benson and Alice Munro, and how they related to principal developments of the book in Canada. This lecture was delivered on March 9, 2015.
