CanLit Dumpster Fire - a reading list
This list is not complete. It is a living document, and new resources can be added as they come. Its purpose is to compile the important work that is responding to issues and discussions in "CanLit".
If you have a new resource, essay or link to add, let me know. I don’t plan on revising this regularly, so please be patient.
Please share and use! Thank and cite the folks who did the heavy lifting in writing these essays.
(To update the list, please contact Carrianne Leung at firstname.lastname@example.org)
