The essays in Canadian Cultural Exchange / AAE'aa Degreeschanges culturels au Canada provide a nuanced view of Canadian transcultural experience. Rather than considering Canada as a bicultural dichotomy of colonizer/colonized, this book examines a field of many cultures and the creative interactions among them. This study discusses, from various perspectives, Canadian cultural space as being in process of continual translation of both the other and oneself. Les articles rAAE'a ©unis dans Canadian Cultural Exchange / AAE'aa Degreeschanges culturels au Canada donnent de l'expAAE'a ©rience transculturelle canadienne une image nuancAAE'a ©e. PlutAAE'a't que dans les termes d'une dichotomie biculturelle entre colonisateur et colonisAAE'a ©, le Canada y est vu comme champ oAAE'a(1) plusieurs cultures interagissent de maniAAE'are crAAE'a ©ative. Cette AAE'a ©tude prAAE'a ©sente sous de multiples aspects le processus continu de traduction d'autrui et de soi-mAAE'ame auquel l'espace culturel canadien sert de thAAE'a ©AAE'actre.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This anthology ... is a broad-ranging and inclusive collection of essays examining the ways in which Canadian literary productions are created at the intersections of identities and language.... Moving translation away from the restricted space of French-English bilingualism is one of the major achievements of this volume. It begins a much-needed discussion of the interrelations between translation and multiculturalism--two zones of Canadian policy and experience which have been maintained in artificially separate frames.... A lively introduction traces out a network of connections between the many varieties of literary identities and languages represented in the book--including essays on First Nations, Latin American, Franco-Ontarian, and Afro-Canadian authors. The book's editors avoid defining their topics by identity, however, choosing instead to divide the essays into five thematically defined sections--the first section with a more historical perspective, the second on cultural appropriation, the third on the transcultural body, the fourth on reconfiguring the solitudes, ' and the fifth on future directions. A finely argued Postface completes the collection.... '' The editors of the book practice the language politics that they preach, including articles in French as well as English. For allowing both languages to figure in the book, they thank their publisher, Wilfrid Laurier University Press, for bucking the parochial trend' in the publishing industry (p. xxii). Indeed, it has become exceedingly rare for publishers to print volumes containing essays in more than one language. This well-edited and timely volume makes a powerful argument: translation and transculturalism are powerful forces working within Canadian literary creation.''--Sherry Simon "The American Review of Canadian Studies, Spring 2008 "
This collection differs from many studies on literary translation partly because of its corpus, which by no means exhaustive, as Cheadle explains in his introduction, gives a voice to Others who do not always have a literary space to be heard, except in translation. What is particularly interesting is that it opens up the definition of translation to explore, challenge, and reconfigure traditional notions of the cultural interactions and transactions among ethnicities.'''--Natasha Dagenais "Canadian Literature, Number 198, Autumn 2008 "
