Place and Replaceis a collection of recent interdisciplinary research into Western Canada that calls attention to the multiple political, social, and cultural labors performed by the concept of "place." The book continues a long-standing tradition of situating questions of place at the center of analyses of Western Canada's cultures, pasts, and politics, while making clear that place is never stable, universal, or static. The essays here confirm the interests and priorities of Western Canadian scholarship that have emerged over the past forty years and remind us of the importance of Indigenous peoples, dispossession, and colonialism; of migration, race and ethnicity; of gender and women's experiences; of the impact of the natural and built environment; and the impact of politics and the state.
