A 2019 recipient of the Ordre des Francophones d’Amérique, and winner of the 2018 Prix du Quebec and the 2017 Grand Prix de la Francophonie, Miléna Santoro has built her career on exploring the transnational and cross-cultural connections between Quebec’s rich literary and filmic practices and its North-American and global Francophone counterparts and influences. Her books include Mothers of Invention: Feminist Authors and Experimental Fiction in France and Quebec (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2002), and two co-edited volumes: Transatlantic Passages: Literary and Cultural Relations between Quebec and Francophone Europe (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2010) and Hemispheric Indigeneities: Native Identity and Agency in Mesoamerica, the Andes, and Canada (University of Nebraska Press, 2018).
