The Nature of Canada, edited by Colin M. Coates and professor emeritus of UBC Geography Graeme Wynn has received the 2020 prize for the Best Edited Collection in Canadian Studies, awarded by the Canadian Studies Network.
Of the decision, the awarding jury said, “the Jury commends this collection of essays for taking up iconic Canadian Studies materials, authors, and issues and approaching them in novel and compelling ways. This inter/multidisciplinary, wide-ranging, and topical compilation spans from the environment to Indigenous Canada, from Innis to Frye, from the humanities fields of literature and history to the social science fields of economics and politics. The chapters are richly diverse, yet woven together with a common set of critical inquiries and creatively integrate photography and narrative references. This collection ably represents both the roots and the growth of Canadian Studies scholarship.”
