Mapping Publishers

Where were books in the Anishinaabemowin language published? By whom? Where – in local communities, or in traditional publishing centres? And, more significantly, what do these broader networks suggest to us about interest in the colonized peoples of North America?

Three collections provided the data to begin to answer these questions:

The Thomas Fisher Rare Book Collection

The Huron University College Rare Book Collection

Karen Evans’ bibliography, Masinahikan: Native Language Imprints in the Archives and Libraries of the Anglican Church of Canada

Students created an interactive map illustrating where these texts were published, along with the text’s bibliographic information.
