Title
Italian Identity in Montreal: Issues of Intergenerational Ethnic Retention
Abstract
An analysis of intergenerational changes that have taken place within Montreal’s Italian community since the 1950s. The author discovered that, over three generations, there has been a loss of linguistic connection to Italy, an erosion of traditional religious values, and socio-spatial amalgamation. The author concludes that the younger generation keeps ties with its ethnic heritage by upholding cultural symbols rather than cultural values.
