Synopsis

The contributors to this third volume of How Canadians Communicate focus on the question "What does Canadian popular culture have to say about the construciton and negotiation of Canadian national identity?" They show how popular culture is negotiated across the different terrains where a sense of national identity is built, by producers and audiences, government and industry, history and geography, ethnicities, and citizenships. Canada does indeed have a popular culture distinct from other nations, and these contributors are out to prove it.
