Title
The Politics of Display: A ‘Literary and Historical’ Definition of Quebec in 1830s British North America
Abstract
The Quebec City-based “Society for Promoting Literature, Science, Arts and Historical Research in Canada” was the product of the union of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, founded in 1824, and the Society for the Encouragement of the Sciences and the Arts in Canada, founded in 1827. The author argues that this new Society, which received its charter in 1831, held a strategic position of both geographic and socio-political significance in Quebec in the turbulent 1830s.
