This collection of Newfoundland folk narratives, first published in 1996, grew out of extensive fieldwork in folk culture in the province. The intention was to collect as broad a spectrum of traditional material as possible, and Folktales of Newfoundland is notable not only for the number and quality of its narratives, but also for the format in which they are presented. A special transcription system conveys to the reader the accents and rhythms of each performance, and the endnote to each tale features an analysis of the narrator’s language. In addition, Newfoundland has preserved many aspects of English and Irish folk tradition, some of which are no longer active in the countries of their origin. Working from the premise that traditions virtually unknown in England might still survive in active form in Newfoundland, the researchers set out to discover if this was in fact the case.

This edited book explores languages and cultures (or linguacultures) from a translation perspective, resting on the assumption that they find expression as linguacultural worldviews. Specifically, it investigates how these worldviews emerge, how they are constructed, shaped and modified in and through translation, understood both as a process and a product. The book’s content progresses from general to specific: from the notions of worldview and translation, through a consideration of how worldviews are shaped in and through language, to a discussion of worldviews in translation, both in macro-scale and in specific details of language structure and use. The contributors to the volume are linguists, linguistic anthropologists, practising translators, and/or translation studies scholars, and the book will be of interest to scholars and students in any of these fields.

This survey of some of Chicagos most important contributions in cloth, highlights both key and lesser-known works dating from 1971 to the present. From macram to needle point to airbrushed quilts, Chicago employs technique as content in her major projects featured here including The Birth Project (1980-1985), The Holocaust Project (1993), Resolutions: A Stitch in Time (1994 to present) and Chicagos most recent work If Women Ruled the World (2008). Essayists discuss the labour-intensive nature of Chicagos textile work as a metaphor for investing in the ideas, values, histories and provocations in her artwork.Five artists who take this not ion to heart are also profiled, underscoring Chicagos ongoing influence and creating an intergenerational dialogue with : Orly Cogan, (New York, New York), Wednesday Lupypciw (Calgary, Alberta), Cat Mazza (Troy, New York), Gillian Strong (Halifax, Nova Scotia), and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (New York, New York). Co-published with the Art Gallery of Calgary.
