2010 scholar Libe García Zarranz teaches feminist literary and film theory at the University of Cambridge and is a research affiliate at the Canadian Literature Centre at the University of Alberta. On 29 May at 5 pm, McGill-Queen’s University Press will launch Libe’s book Transcanadian Feminist Fictions: New Cross-Border Ethicsas part of the annual conference of the Association for Canadian and Quebec Literatures, 2017 Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences. In her book, García Zarranz reflects on how borders mould social and bodily space and suggests that post-9/11 feminist and queer transnational writing in Canada have formulated a new cross-border ethic.

Earlier in the afternoon, Libe García Zarranz will chair a panel entitled “CanLit’s Racializing Assemblages: Human/Inhuman/Posthuman Interventions.”
