    Title: -30-: Thirty Years of Journalism and Democracy in Canada
    Sub-title: The Minifie Lectures, 1981-2010
    Edited by: Mitch Diamantopoulos
    ISBN10-13: 0889772258 : 9780889772250
    Journalism matters--and this book proves it. This insightful, eloquent and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together, in one volume, thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Touching on a wide range of topics from war to climate change to our ongoing constitutional crisis, these lectures, delivered by some of Canada's leading journalists, stand as a tribute to press freedom and journalistic imagination in Canada. This volume should be required reading not just for journalists, but for anyone concerned about the state of the democratic process, a process that journalism informs and animates. With media industries in crisis and the democratic craft of journalism in peril, this collection serves as a chronicle of the re-invention of Canada, and of Canadian journalism, over the last three decades. The Minifie Lectures, 1981-2010 is an intriguing glimpse into the inner life of the press corps; as such, it will be an essential guide for journalists and media reform movements alike in the years ahead.

    Title: #IdleNoMore
    Sub-title: And the Remaking of Canada
    By (author): Ken Coates
    ISBN10-13: 0889773424 : 9780889773424
    Idle No More bewildered many Canadians. Launched by four women in Saskatchewan in reaction to a federal omnibus budget bill, the protest became the most powerful demonstration of Aboriginal identity in Canadian history. Thousands of Aboriginal people and their supporters took to the streets, shopping malls, and other venues, drumming, dancing, and singing in a collective voice. Idle No More lasted for almost a year before the rallies dissipated. Many observers described it as a spent force. It was anything but. Idle No More was the most profound declaration of Indigenous identity and confidence in Canadian history, sparked by Aboriginal women and their supporters, sustained by young Indigenous peoples, filled with pride and determination. When the drums slowed, a new and different Canada was left in its wake. Partially stunned by the peaceful celebrations, but perplexed by a movement that seemed to have no centre and no leaders, most Canadians missed the point. Through Idle No More, Aboriginal people have declared that they are a vital and necessary part of Canada's future. The spirit of the drumming, singing and dancing lives on in empowered and confident young Aboriginal people who will shape the future of this country for decades to come.

    Title: "I Thought Pocahontas Was a Movie"
    Sub-title: Perspectives on Race/Culture Binaries in Education and Service Professions
    Edited by: James McNinch, Carol Schick
    ISBN10-13: 0889772118 : 9780889772113
    A significant contribution to the understanding of systemic racism in Canadian institutions, this collection of essays arising out of the unique Prairie context interrogates how professionals practicing in law, education, health, and other helping professions engage with issues of race and culture. This book examines the challenges and resistance found within professional groups working with Aboriginal and racial minority peoples. For teachers, social workers, healthcare providers, and professors, the greatest barriers to working across difference may be themselves and their assumptions about what the nature of the "problem" of difference is considered to be. The authors in this volume advocate, question, and critique the uses of what are often considered to be binaries of race and/or culture. They offer examples from professional fields that illustrate the complexity of teaching that finds problems in a culturalist approach as well as a critical orientation that is still found wanting. Will addressing inequality as a race, gender, class, or sexual orientation issue provide greater forward movement than focusing on cultural issues? The answers in this collection are never either/or and must look beyond theoretical orthodoxy for inspiration, if not new questions.
    About The Author:
    James McNinch is professor emeritus and former dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina. His research and publications have focused on teaching and learning in higher education, gender and sexual diversity, racism and white privilege, and the social construction of masculinity.

    Title: "Peace, Progress and Prosperity"
    Sub-title: A Biography of Saskatchewan's First Premier, T. Walter Scott
    By (author): Gordon L. Barnhart
    ISBN10-13: 0889771421 : 9780889771420
    Walter Scott was a populist with a vision for the new province. A newspaperman, entrepreneur, and land speculator before being elected to the House of Commons in 1900, by 1905, Scott had become leader of the Saskatchewan Liberal party and premier of the new province. After the 1905 election, Scott embarked on a program to build the province's infrastructure, including the Legislative Building and the University of Saskatchewan. He believed that agriculture was a vital component in the fabric of Saskatchewan life, and by including farm leadership in cabinet, he created a political climate founded on agriculture. Scott's government was also instrumental in enacting prohibitions and establishing female suffrage. The fruits of Walter Scott's labours in education, agriculture and public policy continue to be harvested in Saskatchewan today, but few remember who planted the original seeds. In his day, Scott was respected for his leadership in the growth and development of Saskatchewan. With the publication of this landmark biography by Gordon L. Barnhart, Scott's pivotal role will be recognized anew by the generations who now live in the province he was instrumental in founding.

    Title: "That's Raven Talk"
    Sub-title: Holophrastic Readings of Contemporary Indigenous Literatures
    By (author): Mareike Neuhaus
    ISBN10-13: 0889772339 : 9780889772335
    "That's Raven Talk": Holophrastic Readings of Contemporary Indigenous Literatures is the first comprehensive study of North American Indigenous language as the basis of textualized orality in Indigenous literatures in English. Drawing on a signficant Indigenous language structure--the holophrase (one-word sentence)--Neuhaus proposes "holophrastic reading" as a culturally specific reading strategy for orality in Indigenous writing. In readings of works by Ishmal Alunik (Inuvialuit), Alootook Ipellie (Inuit), Richard Van Camp (Dogrib), Thomas King (Cherokee), and Louise Bernice Halfe (Cree), she demonstrates that (para)holophrases--the various transformations of holophrases into English-language discourse--textualize orality in Indigenous literatures by grounding it in Indigenous linguistic traditions. Neuhaus's discussion points to the paraholophrase, the functional equivalent of the holophrase, as a central discourse device in Indigenous writing and as a figure of speech in its own right. Building on interdisciplinary research, this groundbreaking study not only links oral strategies in Indigenous writing to Indigenous rhetorical sovereignty, but also points to ancestral language influences and Indigenous rhetoric more generally as areas for future research.

    Title: A Book of Ecological Virtues
    Sub-title: Living Well in the Anthropocene
    Edited by: Heesoon Bai, David Chang, Charles Scott
    ISBN10-13: 088977756X : 9780889777569
    For readers of The Sixth Extinction, a manifesto for meaningfully confronting our role in climate change and committing to sustainable, eco-friendly living during an era irrevocably marked by human activity. Despite our brief tenure on planet Earth, Homo sapiens have caused an epoch of climate change and declining ecological diversity: the Anthropocene. This age has been singularly defined by humans' unique and unprecedented ability to destroy our only habitat. In the face of global warming and animal extinction, it is vitally important we collectively turn toward the cultivation of eco-virtues—a new set of values by which to live—if there is to be any hope for us and other species to continue to exist. Within this collection are Nunavut hunters, religious theologists, acclaimed academics and poets—including writing by philosopher and poet Jan Zwicky recently deemed a seminal text on climate change by The Guardian . The contributors bring a wide breadth of perspectives from diverse realms of philosophy, culture, belief, and writing style. A Book of Ecological Virtues: Living Well in the Anthropocene speaks to humanity's mortality and transience within the study of ecology, including the environmental ramifications of longer life, improved medicine and treatments, and even funeral rites. It is a philosophical and timely collection of essays on how we can embody a more sustainable future through daily action and habit change.

    Title: A Digital Bundle
    Sub-title: Protecting and Promoting Indigenous Knowledge Online
    By (author): Jennifer Wemigwans
    ISBN10-13: 0889775516 : 9780889775510
    An essential contribution to Internet activism and a must read for Indigenous educators, A Digital Bundle frames digital technology as an important tool for self-determination and idea sharing, ultimately contributing to Indigenous resurgence and nation building. By defining Indigenous Knowledge online in terms of "digital bundles," Jennifer Wemigwans elevates both cultural protocol and cultural responsibilities, grounds online projects within Indigenous philosophical paradigms, and highlights new possibilities for both the Internet and Indigenous communities.
    Reviews:
    "A serious advance in state-of-the-art research." -- Marisa Duarte, author of "Network Sovereignty: Building the Internet across Indian Country"
    "This must-read book based on extensive research, dialogue, and consultation with Indigenous Elders, leaders, artists, and academics helps to address the new risks, ethical questions, and challenges for how Indigenous Knowledge can be accessed, appropriately used, published, and transformed using multiple communication and digital forms. It offers the protocols, stories, advice, practices, and wisdom from Indigenous Knowledge holders to help address the challenges and questions about how Indigenous Knowledge can live now and in the future in its divergent forms with new forms of technology." - Marie Battiste, author of Decolonizing Education and founder of the Aboriginal Education Research Centre, University of Saskatchewan
    "[A] welcome intervention into discussions of the digital age, where the rich possibilities and ethical practices coming from Indigenous scholars and cultural activists such as Wemigwans are sorely needed. This important new book is a kind of guide for scholars, activists, media makers, and visionaries as to how we might collectively imagine Indigenous cultural futures with mindful use of digital technologies across the globe." - Faye Ginsburg, director of the Center for Media, Culture and History, New York University

    Title: A Hero for the Americas
    Sub-title: The Legend of Gonzalo Guerrero
    By (author): Robert Calder
    ISBN10-13: 0889775095 : 9780889775091
    A group of shipwrecked Spaniards washed onto the coast of the Yucatŕn Peninsula in 1512, leading to first contact between the Spanish and the Maya. Two men survived the ordeal: Jerónimo de Aguilar, who became a translator for Hernŕn Cortés in his conquest of the Aztecs, and Gonzalo Guerrero, who, as legend has it, embraced the Mayan way of life and skillfully led the opposition to the Spanish take-over of the Yucatŕn. Reviled in 16th-century Spain as an apostate and a traitor, Guerrero is today remembered all over the Yucatŕn with statues and images, and as the symbolic father of millions of Mexican mestizos. But like Robin Hood and King Arthur, Guerrero's story has become embellished by legend and myth. The product of fifteen years of research by a Governor General's Award winner, A Hero for the Americas is the first comprehensive investigation of this controversial figure.
