However, the renaissance that our science is currently experiencing, not least based on the spectacular success of the VLT, has not gone unnoticed among the decision makers in Europe.

Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2001. Davis draws amply from recent work in postcolonial theory to explicate how a reconsideration of perspectives, methods, and sources can shift the center of New World historiography from a relatively simple story of contact to one in which mutual influences, exchanges, and oppressions leave all parties changed in some way.

Carolyn Podruchny, Germaine Warkentin. In 1497, explorers from the confident world of Renaissance Europe sailed, under Captain Giovanni Caboto, into what are now Canadian waters. This significant encounter brought into contact two worlds equally ignorant of each other and set in motion a number of events that culminated in the birth of a new nation. The Renaissance, ordinarily thought of as an entirely European-centred phenomenon is 'de-centred' in these eighteen innovative essays.

Germaine Warkentin and Carolyn Podruchny. In 1994, excavating Martin Frobisher’s 1577 establishment on Kodlunarn Island (in Frobisher Bay on the southeast coast of Baffin Island), archaeologists found among the detritus of that failed mining enterprise over 20,000 fragments of sixteenth-century stove tile. When reconstructed,’ they write, ‘these fragments exhibit stamped impressions showing scenes of classical mythology; two of them bear a date of 1561, which fixes their time of manufacture.

In 1497, explorers from the confident world of Renaissance Europe sailed, under Captain Giovanni Caboto, into what are now Canadian waters. This significant encounter brought into contact two worlds equally ignorant of each other and set in motion a number of events that culminated in the birth of a new nation. The Renaissance, ordinarily thought of as an entirely European-centred phenomenon is 'de-centred' in these eighteen innovative essays. They explore not only how the European Renaissance helped form Canada, but also how more significantly the experience of Canada touched the Renaissance and those who first came to the shores of North America.

Representing a range of disciplines, including literature, anthropology, biology, history, linguistics, and anthropology, this work re-thinks traditional notions of Canada and of the Renaissance. The essays examine both the interaction between the two worlds as well as the ways that this interaction has traditionally been interpreted. As distinct from the rapid transformation of South and Central America, the focus is on the slower northern experience, questioning the European monopoly on history, politics, and science, as well as the misrepresentation of Canada's Aboriginal peoples. Originally presented at a 1996 conference at the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, University of Toronto, these essays provide a wealth of new information and a variety of new perspectives on the collision of the Old World with the New.
