Louise Erdrich is one of the most critically and commercially successful Native American writers. This book is the first fully comprehensive treatment of Erdrich's writing, analysing the textual complexities and diverse contexts of her work to date. Drawing on the critical archive relating to Erdrich's work and Native American literature, Stirrup explores the full depth and range of her authorship. Breaking Erdrich's oeuvre into several groupings - poetry, early and late fiction, memoir and children's writing - Stirrup develops individual readings of both the critical arguments and the texts themselves. He argues that Erdrich's work has developed an increasing political acuity to the relationship between ethics and aesthetics in Native American literatures. Erdrich's insistence on being read as an American writer is shown to be in constant and mutually-inflecting dialogue with her Ojibwe heritage. This sophisticated analysis is of use to students and readers at all levels of engagement with Erdrich's writing
Parallel encounters : culture at the Canada-US border by Gillian Roberts( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in offer close analysis of an array of cultural representations of the Canada-US border, in both site-specificity and in the ways in which they reveal and conceal cultural similarities and differences. Contributors focus on a range of regional sites along the border and examine a rich variety of expressive forms, including poetry, fiction, drama, visual art, television, and cinema produced on both sides of the 49th parallel. The field of border studies has hitherto neglected the Canada-US border as a site of cultural interest, tending to examine only its role in transnational policy, economic cycles, and legal and political frameworks. Border studies has long been rooted in the US-Mexico divide; shifting the locus of that discussion north to the 49th parallel, the contributors ask what added complications a site-specific analysis of culture at the Canada-US border can bring to the conversation. In so doing, this collection responds to the demands of Hemispheric American Studies to broaden considerations of the significance of American culture to the Americas as a whole - bringing Canadian Studies into dialogue with the dominantly US-centric critical theory in questions of citizenship, globalisation, Indigenous mobilisation, hemispheric exchange, and transnationalism
Tribal fantasies : Native Americans in the European imaginary, 1900-2010( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A provocative and at times slightly scandalous collection, Tribal Fantasies considers the ubiquitous, fantastical, and usually nineteenth-century Great Plains Indian and occasional Incan of the European cultural imaginary. The contributors, who work within a trans-European context and use a trans-North Atlantic critical method, find this Indian in far-right political rhetoric, leftist German intellectualism, gay culture, toy sets, erotica, the mid-twentieth-century Polish 'Indian novel, ' and Irish storytelling. Framed by Stirrup's thorough, engaging introduction and Renae Watchman's incisive and equally engaging afterword, the chapters assess the messy collision of indigenous North American and European contexts and produce a host of exciting interpretations and urgent questions."--James H. Cox, author of Muting White Noise: Native American and European American Novel Traditions and The Red Land to the South: American Indian Writers and Indigenous Mexico
