Okanagan Women’s Voices: Syilx and Settler Writing and Relations, 1870s to 1960s is a new and unique history book that places together writings by both Indigenous and settler women of the Okanagan. This approach has led to “new perspectives and understanding” (Okanagan Women’s Voices, Introduction, p. vi). Join us in hearing from all three editors of this important book regarding their editing process and the decisions and discoveries they made.

Jeannette Armstrong, PhD, is an associate professor and Canada Research Chair at UBC Okanagan. She is a recipient of the George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature as an award-winning writer, novelist, and poet. She has also received the Eco Trust USA Buffett Award and was named to the Class of 2021 as a Fellow in the Royal Society of Canada.

Lally Grauer, PhD, is an associate professor emerita at UBC Okanagan, where she taught both Canadian and Indigenous literatures and helped found an Indigenous Studies program. She has collaborated with Indigenous authors on papers and articles and co-edited Native Poetry in Canada: A Contemporary Anthology with Jeannette Armstrong in 2001.

Janet MacArthur, PhD, is an associate professor emerita at UBC Okanagan in the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies. She created and taught the first courses there on women’s literature, autobiography, and trauma studies. Recent conference presentations have been on relations among Syilx, mixed-heritage, and settler women in the Southern Interior and on Holocaust film and fiction.
