Off the Shelf: Virtual Exhibit
In November 2017, ETRC and QUESCREN organized a series of talks in Quebec City, Sherbrooke and Montreal featuring prominent scholars and personalities examining various aspects of English-speaking Quebec. The series, funded by Canadian Heritage, was called “Off the Shelf.” Its goal was to highlight documents and themes from the Bibliography on English-speaking Quebec.
This virtual exhibit looks at some of these themes, showcases highlights from the talks, and invites further exploration of the bibliography.

- Louisa Blair looks at the history and legacy of “English bosses” in Quebec’s company towns
- Rod MacLeod surveys the rise, fall and reinvention of English-language schools in Quebec
- Heather Darch examines how the Fenian invasions affected Quebec’s borderland communities
- Jason Camlot defines how Quebec’s multilingual setting shaped Anglo-Quebec Poetry
