Title
St. Lawrence Boulevard As Third City: Place, Gender and Difference Along Montreal’s ‘Main’
Abstract
St. Lawrence Boulevard, known as “the Main,” symbolically divided the working-class, predominately francophone, east end of Montreal from the middle-class anglophone west-end. Today, it is a multi-use commercial artery, an eclectic border zone of a bilingual, multi-ethnic city. The author argues that as a place that highlights the social and cultural heterogeneity of a supposedly ‘divided’ city, the Main is an ideal site from which to explore how ethnicity, language, class, occupation and sexual identity intersect with gender in the experience and representation of urban life.
