Abstract:

In Canada, diversity is represented as "an ethnicity + a hyphen + Canadian." But what if you are one of the many people who don't fit into an obvious category? What if your background is a hybrid of ancestries and you live "in the hyphen"--Somewhere in between, where cultural identities overlap? This program examines the experiences of poet Fred Wah and six other Canadians with one parent from a European background and one from a visible minority. As globalization increasingly blurs borders of all kinds, Living in the Hyphen offers a provocative glimpse of a future in which hyphens give way to a celebration of mixed heritages.
