Pauline Johnson (1861-1913), Emily Carr (1871-1945), Sheila Watson (1909-1998), Jane Rule (1931-2007), and M. NourbeSe Philip (1947- ), Linda M. Morra explores the ways in which womens archives have been uniquely conceptualized in scholarly discourses and shaped by socio-political forces.

She also provides a framework for understanding the creative interventions these women staged to protect their records. Through these case studies, Morra traces the influence of institutions such as national archives and libraries, and regulatory bodies such as border service agencies on the creation, presentation, and preservation of womens archival collections.The deliberate selection of the five literary case studies allows Morra to examine changing archival practices over time, shifting definitions of nationhood and national literary history, varying treatments of race, gender, and sexual orientation, and the ways in which these forces affected the writers reputations and their archives.

Morra also productively reflects on Jacques Derridas Archive Fever and postmodern feminist scholarship related to the relationship between writing, authority, and identity to showcase the ways in which female writers in Canada have represented themselves and their careers in the public record.
