ACSUS is pleased to acknowledge the publication of Promoting Canadian Studies Abroad: Soft Power and Cultural Diplomacy, edited by Stephen Brooks. We hope that this publication informs and animates the debate over the resumption of funding by the Canadian government for our global Canadian Studies community.

With the recent critical and commercial success of the TV adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, and the newly released adaptation of Alias Grace, myriad audiences are (re)discovering Canadian Margaret Atwood. This rediscovery follows on the heels of Alice Munro’s 2013 Nobel prize for literature, and suggests that conditions are favourable for reinvigorating an interest in Canadian women’s writing that goes beyond the established, now-canonical writers like Atwood and Munro.
ACSUS is delighted to share with you the news that two of its nominees were awarded 2017-2018 Graduate Scholarships from the International Council for Canadian Studies. Our recipients of this prestigious scholarship are:
Christopher Green, of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) for Modern Northwest Coast Native Art, 1960-1990.
