However, the most distinctive feature of this dissertation and what makes it especially valuable, is its emphasis on the subjective states of diasporic subjects with its study of concepts of dislocation and trauma.. Good use is made of particular texts as examples of general or theoretical propositions, e.g. Wiseman’s novel the sacrifice is used extensively in the theoretical section on travel writing to test and illuminate theory.   the historical background to a jewish presence in canada is very well researched [...] the sections on critical analysis of individual texts are Representations of Jewish people in Canadian literature of the 1940s and 1950s Pobierz strong and insightful.   professor coral ann howells .
