"Writing a Politics of Perception offers new approaches to five novels by women writing in Canada. Dawn Thompson analyses these works through an epistemological theory that shifts critical perspective in surprising ways." "Reading these works of Canadian literature through a theory of holographic memory, Thompson adds to and creates an alliance between feminist, post-colonial, and marxist theory, furthering political work in each of these area. The interdisciplinary nature of Writing a Politics of Perception will attract scholars and students in a variety of fields, including Canadian and Quebec literature, comparative literature, women's studies, cultural studies, philosophy, and the social sciences."--BOOK JACKET.
