Just this week McGill-Queens University Press released the brilliant book, Villain, Vermin, Icon, Kin: Wolves and the Making of Canada, by Stephanie Rutherford (Associate Professor in the Trent School of the Environment). The book is a fascinating account of wolves’ changing positions within settler-colonial national imaginaries in Canada – it will be of great interest to animal geographers, environmental historians and humanities scholars, and anyone engaging theories shedding light on the potent nexus of animal and nation.
We at SPAM are lucky enough to host Stephanie on June 8, from 1-2pm pacific / 4-5pm eastern, to introduce and talk about her book! Please join us from wherever you are for this remotely hosted book launch. Email rcollard[at]sfu[dot]ca for the zoom link. Hope to see you there. And if you first want to get in the wolf spirit, check out the music video for Wolf Like Me by TV on the Radio, a fave song of some of us at SPAM 🙂
