Carole Gerson's Canadian Women in Print, 1750-1918 wins 2010 Gabrielle Roy Prize

The Association for Canadian and Quebec Literatures (ACQL) is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2010 Gabrielle Roy Prize (English Section), which each year honours the best work of Canadian literary criticism published in English, has been awarded to Carole Gerson for Canadian Women in Print, 1750-1918, published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press. The book was chosen by a jury composed of Alison Calder (University of Manitoba), Laura Moss (University of British Columbia), and Cynthia Sugars (University of Ottawa) from among the twenty books submitted this year, for its outstanding contribution to scholarship on Canadian literature.

Gerson’s study constitutes a major contribution to our understanding of women's participation in Canadian book history and the development of Canadian literature. Arguing the ongoing need for recognition of the significance of work done by women, Gerson blends a materialist sociological approach with literary and biographical history. By situating the women she studies within these multiple and overlapping contexts, Gerson furthers our understanding of Canadian social history and advances knowledge of Canadian publishing more generally. The result is a nuanced and probing history of print in Canada.
