One essay in the current issue -- "The Legacy of Sir John A. Macdonald" (T. Brennan, et al) -- may be read as a companion piece to our 2016 special issue, "Critical Race Perspectives on Sir John A. Macdonald."   Vol 3, No.1 (2016)

This 2016 special issue includes essays and curated contributions from a number of Queen's community members, including Erin Sutherland, Leah Decter, Laura Murray, and Paul Carl (Obiziindan Animitagozi Noodin). Their contributions emerged from the 2014 Indigenous Research Symposium, "Critical Indigenous Perspectives on Sir John A Macdonald" sponsored by Four Directions Centre, and from the 2015 performance series curated by Erin Sutherland, "Talkin' Back to Johnny Mac."
