Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses two separate but interrelated dimensions of Canadian postcolonialisms in two locations: English Canada and Québec. In reviewing the history and the current state of postcolonial studies in these two locales, the chapter answers the following questions. First, can a place be found for English Canada and Québec within postcolonial models, and if so, how do these locations require alterations within the currently dominant models, and what do they contribute to an understanding of these literatures? Second, what contributions have Canadian critics made to the postcolonial field in general, and how does the contemporary pursuit of settler colonialism across the English/French divide inform in specific ways the labour of these critical voices?

Keywords: postcolonial, postcolonial studies, English Canada, Québec, settler colonialism
