Making Public Cultures provides new ways of thinking about the vibrant media and craft cultures generated by Riot Grrrl and feminism's third wave. It focuses on a cluster of feminist publications—including BUST, Bitch, HUES, Venus Zine, and Rockrgrl—that began as zines in the 1990s. By tracking their successes and failures, Making Public Cultures gives readers insight into the politics of feminism's recent past.

Camping In Ontario (CIO) is a not-for-profit organization that has represented privately-owned and -operated campgrounds in the province of Ontario, Canada for over 40 years. We have been designing their annual reports for several years.

Sexual Enjoyment in British RomanticismMcGill-Queen's University Press
- Book cover design mockup
Debates about gender in the British Romantic period, which often took place in novels and poems, tended to turn on the issue of sexual enjoyment. The concept of sexual enjoyment was a scientific innovation at the time, emerging from research in botany. As the gender debates intensified, the Romantic-era anxiety about sexual enjoyment had two consequences. On the one hand, it necessitated the modern psychological concept of the unconscious. Desire was seen as an uncontrollable force; the unconscious became the repository of disavowed enjoyment and the reason for sexual difference. In this way, the Romantics can be said to have invented psychoanalysis – as soon as discussions of “the sexes” came to revolve around the problem of sexual enjoyment, psychoanalysis had come into existence as an ideological system and literary device, if not yet as a science. On the other hand, tighter regulation of sexual enjoyment made backhandedly possible a vast expansion of the limits of imaginable sexuality. Sexual Enjoyment in British Romanticism shows how the era’s most influential literary thinkers of gender, in particular Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, Ann Radcliffe, Mary Robinson, Joanna Southcott, Charlotte Dacre, Jane Austen, and Percy Bysshe Shelley, imagined unregulated enjoyments and sexual identities, many of which resisted categorization by gender. Joining close readings of texts with archival research and Lacanian psychoanalytic theory, this book reveals the fictive structure of modern sexuality, makes visible a wider diversity of sexual identities in the period, and offers a new way to understand gender in British Romanticism.
Abuse or Punishment?Wilfrid Laurier University Press

At one time, the use of corporal punishment by parents in child-rearing was considered normal, even universally accepted. Only in the second half of the nineteenth century did this begin to change, in Quebec as well as the rest of the Western world. Then the extent of ill-treatment inflicted on children—treatment once excused as good child-rearing practice—was discovered. Abuse or Punishment? deeply considers not only the history of violence towards children in Quebec, but the history of public perception of this violence and what it means for the rest of Canada.
Unified FieldsMcGill-Queen's University Press

Unified Fields: Science and Literary Form argues that literary form is an important opportunity for understanding the relationship between literature and science. Through a series of close readings of poetry and prose texts, the book demonstrates that formal structures in literature can connect to scientific concepts (for example, mathematical equations, particle physics, the DNA strand) and that these forms share essential interpretive functions with their scientific counterparts.
