This issue of the Literary Cultures journal focuses on Culture within Canada and its presence in Canadian Literature. The writers of this issue aim to answer questions such as: How is culture portrayed in Canadian Literature? How is it interpreted? And what can we, as readers, learn from it? The main inspiration for the works included in this issue is an experimental, collaborative online poetry work based on a novel by a Chinese Canadian writer Fred Wah: High Muck a Muck: Playing Chinese. ‘This collaboratively created website explores historical and contemporary tensions surrounding Chinese immigration to British Columbia, Canada. It is the work of many artists, writers, designers, developers, community members and funders’ (The High Muck a Muck: Playing Chinese website).
