The impact of the Great War on Quebec, including that of the conscription crisis that divided French and English Canada, is often considered well known by the historiography. The impact of the immediate aftermath of the First World War on Quebec nationalism has, however, seldom been analysed, and has instead been overshadowed by a focus on the impact of the war on the evolution of Canadian nationalism, and the analysis of the relationship between the conscription crises of both world wars and modern Quebec nationalism in the 1960s.

This book explores the development of Robert Lepage’s distinctive approach to stage direction in the early (1984–94) and middle (1995–2008) stages of his career, arguing that globalisation had a defining effect in shaping his aesthetic and professional trajectory. It combines examination of Lepage’s theatremaking techniques with discussion of his work’s effects on audiences, calling on Lepage’s own statements as well as existing scholarship and critical response. In addition to globalisation theory, the book draws on cinema studies, queer theory, and theories of affect and reception. As such, it offers an unprecedented conceptual framework, drawing together what has previously been a scattered field of research. Each of six chapters treats a particular aspect of globalisation, using this as a means to explore one or more of Lepage’s productions. These aspects include the relationship of the local (in Lepage’s case, his background in Québec) to the global; the place of individual experience within global late modernity; the effects of screen media on human perception; the particular affect of ‘feeling global’; the place of branding in contemporary creative systems; and the relationship of creative industries to neoliberal economies. Making theatre global: Robert Lepage’s original stage productions will be of interest to scholars of contemporary theatre, advanced-level undergraduates with an interest in the application of theoretical approaches to theatrical creation and reception, and arts lovers keen for new perspectives on one of the most talked-about theatre artists of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

( LERRN, 2020 ). Inspired by the habits of work of WUSC, LERRN fieldwork relies on themes and methods selected by refugee-led organizations, such as Tanzania’s DIGNITY Kwanza and the Network for Refugee Voices, in collaboration with more traditional agencies such as Oxfam, CARE Canada, and Oxfam-Québec. Conclusion Historians and sociologists who observe that ‘social networks have given birth to an intermediary public space beyond nation states’ often lament the negative impact of social media on public life: an Americanization brought about by the hold of the

The Dragon’s Trilogy

1 Local, global, universal? The Dragon’s Trilogy Québec is multiple, it is in the global village, and not just in the franco­phonie. It has to be part of the world! My nationalist act is to make theatre here and abroad, with my roots and my languages, my history. (qtd in Lévesque ‘Archange’)i Robert Lepage made this statement in 1992, less than a decade after his international reputation was launched with the touring success of the epic group production La Trilogie des dragons/The Dragon’s Trilogy and the solo show Vinci. While affirming the central place of

Introduction On 6 June 2021, in London, Ontario, four members of the Afzaal family were run down and killed by a white man, leaving their nine-year-old son as the sole survivor. Police reported that he attacked them intentionally because they were Muslim. The London attack was a harsh reminder of a similar event a few years earlier at a mosque in Quebec City. The mosque shooting was the first incident where Muslims were killed at their place of worship in a Canadian city. On 29 January 2017, six Muslim

In October 1995, less than two years after Robert Lepage’s 1992–94 Cycle Shakespeare tour ended in Québec City, Canada narrowly avoided what seemed like national dissolution when Québec voters, by a margin of only one per cent, turned down a proposal to negotiate sovereignty from the country. The tour of the Cycle – comprised of Coriolan, Macbeth and La Tempête

, the terms offered by these lenders far surpass the ability of the enterprises to repay. Finding a solution to this problem would greatly facilitate the development of social economy enterprises in Quebec. The social economy CURA was funded via a five-year research grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s CURA programme. The CAP project did not require any special funding. The seminars and working group meetings were funded from the amounts allocated to the different CAPs under the social economy CURA. Organization/structure CAP was

education policy have remained rare in the Irish context. The concept of interculturalism, which has played an important role in recent Irish political and educational discourse, was largely developed in Canada, and especially in Quebec, as well as through the Council of Europe (with other international influences of course, such as that of Carmel Camilleri from Tunisia in the 1980s). However, this does not seem to have led educational actors, or even most researchers in Ireland, to explore further what developments in some of those countries might be of interest for
