Author Biography

Shoshannah Ganz, Grenfell Campus, Memorial University

Shoshannah Ganz is Associate Professor of English at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada.  Her areas of interest include Canadian literature; Canadian literature and ecology; and the influence of Japanese literature and culture on Canadian writers and writing.  Shoshannah has published on a number of Canadian authors and co-edited The Ivory Thought: Essays on Al Purdy with the University of Ottawa Press in 2008. Her recent monograph, Eastern Encounters: Canadian Women’s Writing About the East, 1867-1929, was published with National Taiwan University Press in 2017 as part of their East-West series. Her current research looks at the way industry is figured in the literature of Canada and Japan and the impacts of industry on humans and the more-than-human environment. This research extends beyond the literary texts to explore the remaking and remarketing of the post-industrial landscapes of Japan and Canada as tourist destinations.
