Revisioning Critical ConversationsBook - 2010
"Troubling Tricksters is a collection of theoretical essays, creative pieces, and critical ruminations that provides a revisioning of trickster criticism in light of recent backlash against it. The complaints of some Indigenous writers, the critique from Indigenous nationalist critics, and the changing of academic fashion have resulted in few new studies on the trickster. One of the objectives of this anthology, then, is to encourage scholarship that is mindful of the critic's responsibility to communities, and to focus discussions on incarnations of tricksters in their particular national contexts. Troubling Tricksters offers a timely counterbalance to the growing critical lacuna and proposes new approaches to trickster studies, approaches that have been clearly influenced by the nationalists' call for cultural and historical specificity."--BOOK JACKET.
