Administrative history

In 2014 a research project was conducted by Judith Saltman of UBC’s School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies, and SLAIS graduate student Bonnie Tulloch. The project was called No Man Is An Island: Examining island imagery and its relation to female identity in a selection of Canadian children’s and young adult literature. It was a literary analysis involving interviews with several award-winning British Columbia children’s book authors. Deirdre Baker, Polly Horvath, and Kit Pearson shared a common theme: writing children’s and young adult novels set in the B.C. Gulf Islands. Portions of those interviews were used to create several academic papers and presentations.
