Contested Spaces: Conflict, Counter-Narrative an Culture From Below

in Canadian and Québécois Literatures

The state legitimates its ideologies though specific material strategies and practices in the aim
of defining social discourse and those who may participate in its production. If the
normalization and codification of public spaces produces the “proper” citizen who participates
in the consumption of the marketplace, it also produces the obverse - the homeless, the
criminal, the unemployed, the welfare recipient, the declassed migrant, the prisoner, the
dispossessed aboriginal, the racial and linguistic other.

Issue 7: HAUNTING

The idea of haunting points to a residue or surplus of meaning that cannot be affirmed in the
present and nevertheless makes itself known in unexpected and disruptive ways. The haunting
traces of the forgotten, the disavowed and the effaced fundamentally undermine and trouble
what we have come to know and rely on as, or in, the present. In this sense, haunting opens up
the complex possibility of spectral knowledge and emerges as a powerful tool of
conceptualisation and representation.
