Biography

Anne Trépanier is a historian born and raised in Québec City. After completing a I.B. (1993), she completed a B.A. in History at Laval  University (1996), an M.A. in Rhetoric and Quebec Literature at McGill University (1999), an M.A. Political Studies at Centre Raymond-Aron Écoles des Hautes études en Sciences Sociales (2002) a Ph.D. in Historiography at Laval University (2005) and  a postdoc at University of Ottawa in 2006. Her doctoral research examined recurring historiographical battles and put forward the idea of refoundation (in French : refondation) for exploring the narrative and rhetorical structures of “textual  events”. Her current research happens in two different fields. She explores representations of Confederation prior to 1867 in satirical newspapers. She also pursues a research project “Quebec in the Eye of the Other” to seek causes of intercultural (mis) understandings amongst university students.She is also developing a study or cultural artifacts and primary sources pedagogy in online teaching. Anne Trépanier collaborates frequently to public history projects. Sense of belonging, national representations, identity narratives, and textual archeology are the compas points of her intellectual queries.
