Studies in Canadian Literature (SCL) is a biannual, bilingual journal devoted to the study of Canadian literature in English and French, and published at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. SCL is peer-reviewed, and welcomes submissions on all aspects of Canadian literature.
Article submissions are invited for consideration for a special issue of SCL/ÉLC on the theme of The Ruptured Commons. Revised and expanded papers from the ACLALS triennial conference on the theme are welcome, as are papers written independently of the conference that engage with Canadian or Indigenous literatures. Essays should be submitted by 31 December 2022; the issue will be co-edited by John Clement Ball and Asma Sayed and will be published in 2024.
The winner of this year’s Herb Wyile Prize in Canadian Literature is Morgan Vanek (U of Calgary) for her essay “Better ‘Death in Its Most Awful Shapes’ than Life in Nova Scotia: Climate Change and the Nova Scotia Maroons, 1796-1800” in SCL 45.2 (2020).
Cheryl Lousley (Lakehead U) has received an honourable mention for her essay “After Extraction: Idling in the Ruins in Michael Winter’s and Alistair MacLeod’s Neoliberal Fictions," which also appeared in 45.2.
