2017 Royal Society Fellow

Professor Margery Fee has been named to the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), the highest honour a scholar can achieve in the arts, humanities and sciences in Canada.

Professor Fee has a stellar national and international reputation for her research in Canadian Literature and Canadian English Lexicography. Among her most influential publications are Literary Land Claims: the “Indian Land Question” from Pontiac’s War to Attawapiskat (WLU Press, 2015), and the Guide to Canadian English Usage (OUP), which has been described as “the Canadian Fowler.” Her research on Indigenous Literature has transformed scholarly approaches to the subject and its place within Canadian Studies.

She will be officially inducted into the academies of the RSC at a ceremony in Winnipeg in November.
