Description

For better or worse, postmodernism has become the master concept for thinking about the culture of our time. Vancouver: Representing the Postmodern City examines how Vancouver has been represented through literary and iconic narratives of power, morality, and ethnicity. Included are essays on the city and its representations in architecture, literature, visual art, and film. Also featured are over forty illustrations, many in colour. Contributors include Trevor Boddy, George Bowering, Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Jeff Derksen, Mike Hoolboom, Rosa Ho, and Bruce Serafin.
