When underground comix emerged in America in the 1970s, they were connected with the counter culture movement and rife with anti-establishment content. These comics participated in and addressed counterpublics, which queer theorist Michael Warner defines as "formed by their conflict with the norms and contexts of their cultural environment." Yet much of the scholarship of the underground comix movement has centered on straight white men located in San Francisco (e.g. R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson).

"Every human society possesses a mythology/which is inherited, transmitted and diversified by literature."

Calling this idea the "garrison mentality," Frye argued that all of Canadian literature falls within one central archetype – the belief that due to the "hostile nature" of the Canadian landscape, the literature exhibited a theme of isolation and moral discomfort.

The 2015 bicentennial anniversary of Julia Margaret Cameron's birth is a timely opportunity for a reappraisal of the interdisciplinary significance of her work. The last twenty years have witnessed growing art-historical and literary interest in this pioneer of Victorian photography, yet much remains to be said about the range and import of her cultural influences, as well as her participation in Victorian debates surrounding the arts and sciences, religion and philosophy.
