Current events, such as Canada’s upcoming 150th anniversary, the Brexit vote, and the international affairs policies instilled by the Republican Party in the US, encourage a reconsideration of the concepts of nation, nationalism, and the nation centre.

What is the role of literature as it intersects with these matters throughout history?
