A biannual publication by the Association for Canadian Studies, with papers and proceedings from their national conferences, where various concerns of importance to the Canadian studies movement are addressed. The book covers numerous topics around Canada’s relationship to its marine environment, including fisheries, marine law and how best to manage the country’s coastal zone.
The cover features a simple hand drawn wave graphic reproduced in dark blue, together with a maple leaf symbol designed by David Bartholomew for the Association. Bartholomew worked at the University of Waterloo alongside Kathy Jull and George W. Roth. The distance between the wave lines increases each time, adding a sense of perspective as the viewer looks out to sea.
