The New Saskatchewan (CTR 154 Spring 2013)
Edited by Moira Day and Mary Blackstone


This issue examines the epic Saskatchewan of history, myth, and cultural memory as a province that remains an inexhaustible mine of archetypes, patterns, and narratives that can be excavated and refined into new, reaffirming visions of local identity, culture, and language that simultaneously resist and engage with a dominant culture.

Contributors include M. E. Powell, Kathryn Bracht, Marie-Diane Clarke, Ian C. Nelson, Ian McWilliams, Kelly-Jo Burke, and Warren Linds.

The two short plays that conclude this issue draw together many of the perspectives in the articles. Both come from the new wave of people moving to “The Land of Living Skies,” but neither is bounded by a particularly Saskatchewan perspective. Maki Yi deals with the challenges of finding a space and place to call home in ways that connect her not only to the experience of immigrants but also to that of the elderly. In exploring our selfish and proprietary attitude toward the natural world, Yvette Nolan raises questions that resonate with increasingly global environmental awareness. Both playwrights may call Saskatchewan home, but they draw heavily from their national and international experience.
