Reflecting upon Innis’s Canadian North

A piece I co-authored with Dr. William J. Buxton appears in an issue of Topia: Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies dedicated to “Theory in a Cold Climate.”

The whole issue is not open access, though Dr. Peter C. van Wyck’s editor’s introduction — which gives a lovely sense of what drove the issue’s production, and how the pieces included come together — is easily available here.
