To celebrate Montreal’s 375th anniversary, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Montreal wanted to examine the mechanisms and processes that have made it possible, in the history of the city, to maintain a relative social peace. The CIRM is now proud to present its first publication (in French), Vivre ensemble à Montréal. Épreuves et convivialités. This book contains twenty-four texts which reveals the many uses that Montrealers make of public places sometimes known, sometimes less. Essays and case studies alternate with testimonies rooted in everyday experiences, exploring conviviality and tensions that weave links between spaces and citizens. They discuss places of sociability, how we develop a sense of belonging to the city and the ways we can live together.
Vivre ensemble à Montréal. Épreuves et convivialités is co-edited by Annick Germain, (INRS) Valérie Amiraux (UdeM) and Julie-Anne Boudreau (INRS). The volume also contains contributions of some of CIRM's members such as Harold Bérubé, Aliki Economides, Julia Freeman, Mariève Isabel, Mathieu Lapointe et Mary Anne Poutanen. Published by Atelier 10 ("Formes" collection), Vivre ensemble à Montréal. Épreuves et convivialités is available in bookstores on Tuesday, December 7th 2017.
