Short Desription

An apocalyptic vision of planetary self-destruction provided the context for many late twentieth-century narratives. Women writers from Quebec and English Canada, including Margaret Atwood, Madeleine Ouellette-Michalska, Madeleine Gagnon, Betsy Warland, Marie-Claire Blais, and Nicole Brossard, redefined their relationship to time and narrative in order to tell a different, perhaps more hopeful, story. Using "archaeology" as a trope and a methodology, Karen McPhersons "critical excavations" of these womens writings pose questions about loss and mourning, survival and witnessing, devastation and writing, remembering and imagining. In Archaeologies of an Uncertain Future, McPherson explores the memory work, alternative historiographies, and feminist aesthetics by which women writers revisit the past and reimagine the future. Grounded within critical discourses across many discplines, McPhersons analysis engages contemporary discussions about autobiographical genres, post-modern historiographies, memoirs, and literary genealogies.
