Genealogy and Genomics in Québec: Bio-racial Signifiers and the National "Family"

Genealogy, or the study of one's ancestral patri-lineage, has a long and esteemed pedigree in French-Canadian and Québécois history. From Cyprien Tanguay's late-nineteenth century encyclopedias to René Jetté's updated versions more than a century later, genealogy has been an important component of French-Canadian nationalisms. 

Darryl Leroux is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology, St Mary’s University, Halifax. He is also co-editor of Critical Inquiries: A Reader in Studies of Canada (Fernwood, 2013).

All are welcome to attend this brownbag lunch seminar.
