Main Article Content
In "A Cosmopolitan New World: Douglas Coupland's Canadianation of AmLit," Skinazi examines the "American" novels of Douglas Coupland for their Canadian content. She finds that Coupland, who has been hailed a spokesperson for his generation, repeatedly inserts Canadian characters, references, and places into his fictional versions of the United States. The result is a "Canadianated" America--a transnational space that transcends old-fashioned ideas of nationalism without discarding nationalism altogether, and allows characters to create for themselves communities based on voluntary, and unfixed affiliations.
