The Coach House crew is deeply saddened by the passing of Barbara Godard. Barbara was, as the Avie Bennett Historica Chair of Canadian Literature at York University, one of Canada’s most important academics: an inspiring teacher and a prolific critic of Canadian literature, most specifically the work of innovative Canadian women’s writing in both French and English.
On December 5 and 6, a Toronto symposium celebrates the career of Barbara Godard, teacher, theorist, translator, mentor and activist. The symposium, at the Pia Bouman School (6 Noble Street) features readings and panel discussions and concludes with the launch of Canadian Literature at the Crossroads of Language and Culture: Selected Essays by Barbara Godard.
