Occasional, invited 5000 word essays by senior scholars who have made important contributions to understanding British Columbia. Reflections should not be paraphrased CVs or bibliographic review essays, but memoirs of the personal, scholarly, institutional, or intellectual influences, networks, or communities that triggered important new interpretations in the range of scholarly disciplines that make up BC Studies. Such reflections might take the reader behind-the-scenes and into untold and unpublished areas.
