    A Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Canadian Literature

    Founded in 1959, Canadian Literature was the first quarterly journal devoted solely to the critical discussion of Canadian writers and writing. Since then, we’ve published thousands of articles, book reviews, and poetry in 236 issues. The journal is now read in a 180 countries every year and has contributors from around the world as well. For the past sixty years, we’ve ranked as the leading journal in the field of Canadian literary studies.

    With Congress 2019 being hosted at the University of British Columbia, it is the perfect opportunity to recognize the journal’s 60th anniversary. Join us in celebration of this important milestone with a public reading by innovative poets who are shaping the literary landscape in Vancouver and beyond.

    Emceed by our poetry editor, Phinder Dulai, the reading will include Jordan Abel, Sonnet L’Abbé, Daphne Marlatt, Cecily Nicholson, and Shazia Hafiz Ramji.

    A reception will follow with refreshments and a short program that honours the history of the journal, its contributors, and its creators. The 60th Anniversary Graduate Student Essay Prize will also be awarded.

    The poetry reading and reception are free and open to the public.
