Religious Experience After Husserl
Author: Espen Dahl
Publisher: Hymns Ancient and Modern Ltd
In this book, Espen Dahl invites us to consider neglected resources with the phenomenological tradition, particularly in the later Husserl's and almost ethnographic attention to lived experience. Building a bridge from Otto and Husserl, through Schntz, to Wittgenstein and Cavell, Dahl reinvigorates phenomenology of religion as the philosophical investigation of worship."-James K.A. Smith, Professor of Philosophy, Calvin College

Unsettling Canadian Literature
Author: Laura Moss
Publisher: Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press
Category: Literary Criticism
How can postcolonialism be applied to Canadian literature? In all that has been written about postcolonialism, surprisingly little has specifically addressed the position of Canada, Canadian literature, or Canadian culture. Postcolonialism is a theory that has gained credence throughout the world; it is be productive to ask if and how we, as Canadians, participate in postcolonial debates. It is also vital to examine the ways in which Canada and Canadian culture fit into global discussions as our culture reflects how we interact with our neighbours, allies, and adversaries. This collection wrestles with the problems of situating Canadian literature in the ongoing debates about culture, identity, and globalization, and of applying the slippery term of postcolonialism to Canadian literature. The topics range in focus from discussions of specific literary works to general theoretical contemplations. The twenty-three articles in this collection grapple with the recurrent issues of postcolonialism — including hybridity, collaboration, marginality, power, resistance, and historical revisionism — from the vantage point of those working within Canada as writers and critics. While some seek to confirm the legitimacy of including Canadian literature in the discussions of postcolonialism, others challenge this very notion.
