Mary Ann Gillies teaches English at Simon Fraser University. She is the author of Henri Bergson and British Modernism (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 1996) and The Professional Literary Agent in Britain: 1880-1920 (University of Toronto Press, 2007).

Aurelea Mahood teaches late 19th-century and 20th-century literature at Capilano College in North Vancouver. Her current research projects look at the presentation of Modernism in women’s magazines between 1918 and 1945 and the intersection between the technologies of mass media and late modernism.
