Comment:        RE: SHK 15.1357 CFP - Shakespearean Intertexts in Canada

Can someone translate this passage?

"Thirty years have passed since Julia Kristeva argued that the
intertextual transference of text between signifying systems complements
displacement and condensation as fundamental signifying processes in the
unconscious.... At the same time, studies of colonial and postcolonial
Shakespearean impositions, adaptations and appropriations have led to
dynamic debates over the use of intertextual strategies by postcolonial
writers seeking to deconstruct canonical givens and to destabilize
Eurocentric epistemological power in order to build decolonizing
counter-discourses."

Also, would someone shed some light on Canada's "ambivalent relationship
to the Shakespearean canon"?

Any comments in plain language would be appreciated.

Jack
