I am an historian born in Québec City, and associate professor in the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, where I started teaching in 2009. I am also cross-appointed to the Department of French and the Department of History. I am a passionate teacher, who enjoy spending my energies promoting rigorous critical thinking and intuitive approaches to learning, both online and in the classroom. I see my role as building intellectual and understanding bridges in a multifaceted Canada. My current online courses are CDNS/FINS 2510R Introduction to Quebec Society and CDNS 2300 R Critical Nationalism.

J’enseignerai un cours au département de français au printemps 2020. Ce cours sera l’occasion de marcher sur les traces du roman québécois dans la vieille ville de Québec et de questionner les rapports entre l’histoire, la mémoire et la performance de l’identité nationale dans «l’autre capitale nationale».

My research 

Apart from historiographical researches, my conference papers discuss national representations, Quebec’s narrative and political history, along with pedagogical strategies for the online world and for intercultural mediation.

My new book will discuss the 1867 Confederation as a representation; a projection of dreams and anxieties beyond provincial boundaries, cultures, religions, nations, and ethnicities of 19th century British North America as seen in satirical newspapers (1864-1867).

La rénovation de l’héritage démocratique : entre fondation et refondation, University of Ottawa Press, 2009, 340 pages.This book is an edited collection of chapters discussing the relevancy of «refoundation» and the use of this notion in Canadian history and political philosophy.

Un discours à plusieurs voix : la grammaire du oui en 1995, Presses de l’Université Laval, 2001. This book (my master thesis) reveals the common grammar (values and rhetoric) between the main voices of the OUI camp during the 1995 referendum.
