  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.

  Lipset's Agrarian Socialism A Re-examination
Reflecting on the seminal work of Seymour Martin Lipset -- Agrarian Socialism: the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation in Saskatchewan, A Study in Political Sociology -- academics and political practitioners revisit questions and consider whether the reputation of the best-known social science text on Saskatchewan still holds. As the political practitioners make clear, the geographic and constitutional boundaries may remain as they were, but the economic and cultural boundaries that once defined provinces have manifestly altered if not disappeared as a result of technological change and global perspective.

  Out Spoken: Perspectives on the Creation and Reception of Queer Identities
How is identity formed? If you were born in Canada, that makes you Canadian; if you were raised Jewish, that makes you a Jew, right? But what about a teenage boy from small town Saskatchewan who has a secret crush on the guy who sits next to him in homeroom? What does that make him? And how would his identity change if he grew up to become an out-of-the-closet gay man?
