Sylvie Taschereau

sylvie.taschereau [at] (Sylvie Taschereau) (Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières)

Sylvie Taschereau is professor at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières where she teaches the social and economic history of Quebec and Canada in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her research and publications focus on the history of immigration and interethnic relations, as well on the social histories of the petite bourgeoisie, of commerce and of credit. Her current research concerns the representations of norms associated with credit in Quebec during the first half of the 20th century. In the context of a collective project on the development of the relationship between Quebecers and money and the origins of consumer society, she also studies the evolution of practices relating to credit, in interaction with the activities of financial institutions and state intervention. In 2006, her article “Échapper à Shylock : la Hebrew Free Loan Association of Montreal entre antisémitisme et intégration” received the Guy Frégault Prize, awarded by the Institut d’histoire de l’Amérique française.
