Negotiating Agency, Voice and Identity through Literature

Bookbird seeks contributions for a themed issue on agency, voice and identity. In a fast-changing world, where power is becoming more and more oppressive and undemocratic, agency, voice and identity are the very life elements that can sustain us. Our sense of agency—our ability to assert our identity, exert our voice and make a difference in the world—is closely related to our drive to live, act and hope. Citizens who contribute to, and receive from, their local and global communities, strive to have a voice in issues that matter and to be part of decision-making processes that are of importance. Such empowerment comes from developing a strong sense of identity.

From a lost silent film to Japanese animation, LMM Montgomery’s Anne Shirley is one of the most enduring fictional characters, finding life on the shelves and screens of each generation since the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908.  The release of Netflix’s new adaptation, released internationally as Anne With An E, prompted a range of responses from generations who had grown up with the books and the iconic Kevin Sullivan/CBC mini-series from the 1980s. This new Anne was darker and edgier, her fragility rawer than before – but was she ‘our Anne-girl’?
