  A History of Education in Saskatchewan: Selected Readings
A History of Education in Saskatchewan seeks to address what, until now, has been a gap in Canadian educational history. This book is not intended as a definitive history of education of Saskatchewan, but rather a collection of voices from various quarters. Each of these voices tells a story about an aspect of Saskatchewan's educational past. Collectively, these stories reveal much about how education has shaped the province and how the province shaped education.
  Art of Immersive Soundscapes
What is an immersive soundscape? It can be as simple as a recording made in a forest: leaves crunching underfoot, birds chirping, a squirrel chattering. Or it can be as complex as a movie soundtrack, which involves music but also uses many other sounds—to set the mood for the action and to literally put the viewer in the picture. Sound art defies categorization, and artists using this medium describe their work in many different ways: as sound installations, audio art, radio art, and music.

  False Expectations: Politics and the Pursuit of the Saskatchewan Myth
The challenge for the public dialogue of Saskatchewan, as the province enters its second century, is to not replay the mistakes of the past. Saskatchewan people must recognize the role that myth has played, and must continue to play, in the life of the province. But, at the same time, they must differentiate it from reality by understanding the power of myth as a force for progress and its potential to create false expectations.
  Free Knowledge: Confronting the Commodification of Human Discovery
Alarms are being sounded around the globe over the increasing commercialization of public knowledge for private profit. Whether you are a farmer, a university student, a medical patient, or a library user,these developments impact your daily life. Knowledge privatization holds growing sway over the choice of the foods you eat, the medicine you take, the software you use, the music you hear, and even the flowers you plant in your own backyard. This is the result of a world where plant seeds have become subject to patents, medical research is overseen by pharmaceutical giants,universities are beholden to corporate funders, and indigenous knowledge is expropriated.
  Frontier Farewell
Garrett Wilson introduces his epic account of the 1870's a decade that saw unprecedented changes come to the Great Plains of North America: famine, fire and pestilence-the disappearance of the buffalo-the last stand of the Sioux and the Métis-the Boundary Survey and the "March West" of the North-West Mounted Police-men like Dumont, Walsh, Macleod and Sitting Bull-all encompassed within a brief 10 years, which saw the disappearance of the Old West and the birth of a new society.

  Rhetoric, Uncertainty, and the University as Text:
With contributions from twenty scholars in the fields of composition and rhetoric (including classroom instructors, curriculum designers, program administrators in English and other departments and/or support services), this book offers a thought-provoking and lively collegial exchange on the subject of writing and the writing classroom. Focusing on the classroom as a socio-rhetorical construct, the contributors to this volume explore the complex process of classroom interaction; address questions about how indeterminacy—as a rhetorical factor—affects teaching and learning, student motivation and performance; and examine and critique the mandates and responsibilities of universities as suppliers of “communication skills” and literacy.
