The WIKousta wiki is designed to use collective brainpower to collaboratively map out John Richardson’s 'Wacousta'. This is a large and complicated text with a nuanced history in the field of Canadian literature. This Wiki is intended to help readers understand the text and its features with greater clarity. This project was created by the students enrolled in ENGL 2F62 Contact in Canadian Literature at Brock University in summer 2020 (Professor Gregory Betts). It is given over to the wider community as a resource available to be modified, updated, and extended.
