Catriona Sandilands: Rising Tides

Stemming from the research of her Fellowship project, 2016 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Fellow Catriona Sandilands has published a new anthology titled Rising Tides: Reflections for Climate Changing Times.

Rising Tides is a collection of short fiction, creative non-fiction, memoir and poetry addressing the past, present and future of climate change.

“Ice melt; sea level rise; catastrophic weather; flooding; drought; fire; infestation; species extinction and adaptation; water shortage and contamination; intensified social inequity, migration and cultural collapse. These are but some of the changes that are not only predicted for climate changing futures, but already part of our lives in Canada.”

•Rebeccah Nelems (2015 Scholar)

•Hiromi Goto (2017 Mentor)

•Christopher Campbell-Duruflé (2016 Scholar)

•Jamie Snook (2017 Scholar)

•Bernard Soubry (2018 Scholar)

•Lisa Szabo-Jones (2009 Scholar)

•Jesse Thistle (2016 Scholar)

•Zoe Todd (2011 Scholar)
