  • La République des incinérés : Histoire croisée des mouvements
           crématistes de Paris, du nord de l’Italie et de Montréal au XIXe
           siècle
    • Abstract: LA CRÉMATION fait maintenant l’objet d’un corpus historiographique croissant à l’échelle internationale1. Mais qu’en est-il de la crémation au Canada ? Elle s’institue, tardivement par rapport à ses développements en Europe, avec l’inauguration en 1901 du crématorium du cimetière Mont-Royal à Montréal. Des protestants anglophones réalisèrent ce projet de crématorium malgré l’opposition du clergé catholique québécois. Leur revendication crématiste se développa avant tout en rapport avec des cercles unitariens de Boston, de Londres et d’Allemagne, notamment à travers la famille états-unienne de la Montréalaise Louisa Frothingham. L’incinération, en 1897 à Boston, du mari de cette dernière, John H. R. Molson, donna ... Read More

  • “My own character is thank God above suspicion”: Soldier’s Wives
           with The Royal Canadian Rifle Regiment and Social Values in
           Mid-Nineteenth-Century British North America
    • Abstract: IN 1853, ANN PIGEON unexpectedly found herself a widow with two young children. They had been living in military barracks in Prescott, Upper Canada with her husband, a private in the Royal Canadian Rifle Regiment (RCRR). According to military regulation, the bereft family was granted three months of food rations and faced an uncertain future, being “noted for passages to England by the first opportunity.” Before that could happen, Ann married another soldier of the Regiment, Lance Corporal John Graydon. As a new wife she was forced to go to the bottom of the list and wait her turn before being reinstated on regular food rations, although she was allowed to remain living in military barracks. In her petition asking ... Read More

  • Cholera, the “Sawdust Menace,” and the River Doctor: How Fear of an
           Epidemic Triggered Canada’s First “Pollution” Controversy
    • Abstract: THE REPEATED CHOLERA outbreaks of the nineteenth century and the battles over sawdust pollution during the second half of the 1800s have each been closely studied by Canadian historians—the former phenomenon as the key driver in the origin of the country’s public health system, the latter as Canada’s prototype environmental controversy.1 While the two issues clearly overlap on the timeline of Canadian history, there has not been any demonstrated linkage between the two—no interpretation in which the contemporaneous “visitations” of cholera and rising concerns about sawdust dumping were seen as somehow interwoven. This study reveals a previously undocumented connection between these issues and shows how a feared ... Read More

  • “Most Anxious to Serve their King and Country”: Black Canadians’
           Fight to Enlist in WWI and Emerging Race Consciousness in Ontario,
           1914-1919
    • Abstract: AS THE TWENTIETH century progressed, Black Canadians found it increasingly difficult to ignore the stifling effects of racism in their beloved country.1 The hardships they faced when trying to enlist in World War I marked a decisive turning point for Black Canadian activism in Ontario. These wartime experiences forced Black Canadians to confront the limitations of blackness in Canada. Namely, what it meant to belong to a historically racialized group that was considered by the Canadian state and society as being “half free and half slave”—“mid way betwixt slaves and men.”2 Anglo-Canadian anti-Black sentiment was made painfully apparent, exposing an undeniably vast divide between the idea of racial freedom in theory ...

  • Liquor Laws, Legal Continuity, and Hotel Beer Parlours in Alberta, 1924 to
           c.1939
    • Abstract: IN JULY 1924, Mayor G. H. Webster of Calgary, Alberta, said that Saskatchewan had made a mistake by turning down beer sales on licensed premises in its recent liquor plebiscite.1 At the time, both Alberta and Saskatchewan were looking for new ways to control liquor following the failure of prohibition. Webster’s comment suggests a certain Albertan pride in the province’s innovative liquor system, which had reintroduced liquor stores simultaneously with licensed premises. Admittedly, some Calgarians hoped that beer-by-the-glass was a step towards temperance, but there were others, both in Alberta and elsewhere, who felt that beer-by-the-glass would be easier to control than either prohibition or a liquor-store-only ...

  • On Dads and Damages: Looking for the “Priceless Child” and the
           “Manly Modern” in Quebec’s Civil Courts, 1921-1960
    • Abstract: THE HISTORICAL study of fathers and fatherhood provides a unique opportunity to situate men as gendered subjects within the domestic realm and to explore the complex dynamics through which they have understood and performed their roles as both men and parents.1 Part of a broader exploration of these issues in the context of twentieth-century Quebec, this essay seeks to address the legal rights, status, and obligations of Quebec fathers in the four decades prior to 1960. During this period, the beliefs, behaviours, and institutions associated with twentieth-century modernity made significant inroads in Quebec, notwithstanding the slow pace of institutional reform under Maurice Duplessis and the profound conservatism ...

    • Abstract: DÈS LES ANNÉES 1980, les champions paralympiques en fauteuil roulant mobilisent l’attention des médias. Cette contribution vise à reconstruire les trajectoires biographiques1 de ces sportifs d’élite en se concentrant sur le cas français. C’est donc une réflexion sur la construction de l’excellence athlétique qui est proposée au carrefour de l’histoire du sport, du mouvement paralympique, du handicap et des vulnérabilités.Depuis une quarantaine d’années, les recherches sur l’histoire et la sociologie du sport et de l’olympisme se sont largement développées. Les conditions socio-historiques de naissance et de diffusion du sport aux XIXe et XXe siècles2, ses liens avec la politique3, la place complexe accordée aux ... Read More

Tout au long de l’année, des expositions, des performances publiques, des films, des articles dans les médias, des colloques internationaux (Sorbonne, Paris, 25-28 mars 2015, UCLA 10-11 avril 2015, Erevan 8-12 juillet 2015, Université de Moncton, 1-3 octobre 2015), des publications ainsi que de grandes marches de solidarité à la mémoire des victimes ont rappelé à l’opinion publique que, cent ans plus tard, l’un des premiers génocides du 20e siècle est toujours en attente de reconnaissance de la part de la Turquie et d’une partie de la communauté ...

  • La France face au génocide des Arméniens du milieu du XIXe siècle à
           nos jours: Une nation impériale et le devoir d’humanité by Vincent
           Duclert (review)
    • Abstract: In La France face au génocide des Arméniens, French historian Vincent Duclert traces France’s positions—political as well as social—towards the Armenian Genocide. The book has the great merit of analysing France’s official positions, on the one hand, and the various pro-Armenian sentiments, on the other. Most of all, it discerns the reasons behind the latent debates surrounding the recognition of the genocide of the Armenians and the prosecution of its denial in France.Firstly, concerning France’s official positions towards the genocide: Duclert argues that France abandoned the Armenians at the time of the “Great Massacres” of 1894-1896. Even as information from Armenia was being communicated to the European ... Read More

  • Open Wounds: Armenians, Turks, and a Century of Genocide by Vicken
           Cheterian (review)
    • Abstract: Open Wounds is an appropriate title for a book whose author set himself the task of describing and analyzing the centennial history of paralyzing denial and dysfunctional Turkish-Armenian relations. His narrative covers the period between the Tanzimat or reform era (1839-1876) and 2014 and includes events in the South Caucasus during the Tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet eras.“I have often wondered why the fate of the Armenians has remained largely confined to and discussed by only the Armenians themselves”, complains Cheterian in the concluding chapter of his book (p. 299f.). One possible answer is that with rare exceptions the memoirs of Armenian survivors were translated into international languages only decades ... Read More

    • Abstract: The editors of this most useful volume lay out their theoretical framework in an enlightening introduction. Joceline Chabot (Université de Moncton), Richard Godin (Université Laval), Stefanie Kappler (Durham University), and Sylvia Kasparian (Université de Moncton) argue that “representation […] is a social and political process that is never neutral,” (p. 6) For the most part the nine essays authored by a variety of scholars that comprise this volume attest to the veracity of that statement; at the least they test it.Continuing the argument laid out in the introduction, Adam Muller (University of Manitoba) raises a significant question in Chapter 1: since representation inevitably involves some kind of aesthetic ...

  • The Spirit of the Laws: The Plunder of Wealth in the Armenian Genocide by

    • Abstract: Once the Armenian and Assyrians peoples were deported out of their historic lands and decimated through barbaric acts, there remained the question of the property, land, wealth, and civilization left behind. There was also the issue of survivors and their descendants who could have claims over what was euphemistically called ‘Abandoned Properties’ thus leading to the creation and refinement of the “Abandoned Properties Laws”. Taner Akçam and Umit Kurt have already made important contributions to document the wrongful acts and the lies on which the current historical narrative of their country, Turkey, is built. With this book, they undertake the systematic examination of the legal framework put in place and ... Read More

Ce récit passionnant est une synthèse originale et surprenante d’une dizaine d’années d’enquêtes de terrain que les auteurs ont effectuées, surtout dans des lieux historiques en Turquie.

  • Centering Native Diasporas in North American History
    • Abstract: During the past decade, the concept of diaspora has made a powerful entry into Native North American history.1 While scholars may have previously felt uncomfortable with this culturally alien term whose origins lie in Jewish history, many have come to embrace it as a way to make sense of the continent’s Indigenous pasts, which seem increasingly complex, shifting, and entangled.2 Since 2000, three overlapping historiographical trends have paved way for this development. First, Jon Parmenter, Michael Witgen, and others have recalibrated scholarly understandings of mobility in Native North America, arguing that rather than a sign of Native decline or disunity, mobility often constituted a strategy for political ...

Il se trouve donc que pas moins de trois ouvrages collectifs parus en 2014-2015 traitent de différentes facettes de cette problématique.Des trois, Mémoires et mobilisations est probablement l’ouvrage le plus ambitieux. Landry, Pâquet et Gilbert se sont donné comme objectif d’étudier trois dimensions de la mémoire : sa médiation (la manière dont elle est transmise par divers moyens de communication allant de la littérature aux médias, en passant par les ouvrages savants), son rapport à de nouveaux projets de société (souvent de nature utopique) ...

  • Les corps meurtris : Investigations judiciaires et expertises
           médico-légales au XVIIIe siècle by Fabrice Brandli et Michel Porret

    • Abstract: En 1975, dans son oeuvre phare Surveiller et punir, Michel Foucault avançait que les systèmes judiciaires de l’Europe moderne plaçaient le corps du condamné au coeur du système pénal et répressif en lui affligeant des peines corporelles et en l’exposant publiquement lorsque condamné à mort. Près de quarante ans plus tard et après de nombreux travaux sur l’histoire de la justice, de la criminalité et du droit en Europe moderne et un renouveau en histoire du corps marqué par les études de Georges Vigarello et de Cathy McClive, Michel Porret et Fabrice Brandli démontrent dans ce livre que le corps de la victime tout autant que celui de l’accusé pouvait être un chaînon majeur dans l’ensemble de la procédure pénale en ...

  • Entangling Migration History: Borderlands and Transnationalism in the
           United States and Canada ed. by Benjamin Bryce and Alexander Freund

    • Abstract: This volume represents the latest contribution to a growing body of scholarship that extends the study of migration in North America beyond analyses of single groups of migrants, such as the Loyalists or New England-bound French-Canadians who have received so much scholarly attention. The recent literature does not reject these types of studies, but instead integrates them within broader conceptual frameworks attentive to transnational connections, the special dynamics of borderlands regions, and the multiple scales at which migration systems develop, from the local to the global.Entangling Migration History is a worthy addition to this scholarship, and offers a model for incorporating multiple theoretical ...

  • British Art and the First World War, 1914-1924 by James Fox (review)
    • Abstract: British Art and the First World War, 1914-1924 is a compact, well-researched and illustrated national case study on the relationship between art, society, and the Great War in the United Kingdom. In six chapters, it chronologically examines the business of wartime art and the new relationships established between art and its publics over a 10-year period ending with the British Empire Exhibition in 1924. The book is based on James Fox’s doctoral dissertation. His nearly decade-long exploration of his subject is reflected in the slim volume’s 30-page bibliography. If Fox’s argument that the First World War catastrophically affected British art is perhaps too strongly put, certainly the evidence he provides for a ... Read More

  • The Cowboy Legend: Owen Wister’s Virginian and the Canadian-American
           Frontier by John Jennings (review)
    • Abstract: This book is unique in that its historical narrative and focus are played out against a single individual and an unanswered literary question. In setting the two ranching frontiers in the United States and Canada against the experiences of Everett Johnson who lived on both, John Jennings brings a new dimension to what has become an ongoing debate about the nature of two parallel ranching traditions. Furthermore, through his plausible speculations that the Virginia-born Everett Johnson was the model for Owen Wister’s hero in his 1902 seminal novel, The Virginian, Jennings links the origins of a literary genre and a North American mythical figure with a cowboy who lived most of his life in western Canada.Jennings’ ...

McCalla has himself done this, especially in Planting the Province: The Economic History of Upper Canada, 1784-1870, which remains the preeminent interpretation in this substantive area of study. Since its publication, his emphasis has shifted to that of the consumer, and in this genre he has written on the acquisition of alcohol, textiles, guns, and “A World without Chocolate”—a theme ...

La persistance des préjugés raciaux et des discriminations systémiques invite pourtant à réfléchir à la place du Québec dans l’histoire du passé colonial occidental. Ce devoir de mémoire est au coeur du dernier livre de Sean Mills, A Place in the Sun: Haiti, Haitians, and the Remaking of Quebec. Consacré à l’histoire de la communauté haïtienne montréalaise, celui-ci explore la nature du lien établi entre Québec et Haïti depuis les années 1930 et le rôle des immigrants haïtiens dans l’évolution de la société québécoise au ...

           Janet E. Mullin (review)
    • Abstract: Card games and gambling on the outcomes of those games was a key aspect of social life for all classes in eighteenth-century England. Gaming was most visible amongst the aristocracy due to the attention provoked by the high stakes for which many aristocrats played and the reputation for profligate vice that was associated with their gambling habits. Historians have also tended to focus on the gaming habits of the upper and lower echelons of the social order. Historians such as Amanda Foreman have illuminated the central role played by gambling in the social life of prominent aristocrats such as Georgiana Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire, while historians of plebeian culture such as Tim Hitchcock have studied ...

Non satisfaites de leur sort, elles menacent de briser les fenêtres du palais de justice si on n’accepte pas de les admettre à la prison commune. Comme d’autres prostituées qui arpentent les rues de Montréal pendant la saison froide, elles sont prêtes à bien des ruses pour trouver asile derrière les barreaux afin d’y profiter d’un peu de nourriture, de chaleur et peut-être aussi de soins médicaux.Ces femmes aux parcours de misère sont quelques-unes des nombreuses figures que présente Mary Anne Poutanen dans son histoire de la prostitution à Montréal au début du XIXe siècle. ...

    • Abstract: In the United States, the historical debate concerning gun culture and the propriety and efficacy of firearm regulation has been a minor front in the larger cultural, social, and legal war over the role of firearms in the American republic. This has often been a total war, with the result that some writers have marshalled strong rhetoric and selective evidence in order to make historical claims that support their view of how Americans should think about and regulate firearms. The war has resulted in at least one academic casualty: Michael Bellesiles resigned his tenured position at the Emory University after many errors became apparent in his book Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture. The academic ... Read More

    • Abstract: Béla Tomka has set himself the daunting task of producing a social history of twentieth century Europe that covers all of the continent’s geographical regions, provides as much comparative analysis among regions and nations as feasible, and attempts to grasp general trends without neglecting the national and local specificities that call into question general explanations of contemporary social development. He explicitly eschews adopting particular theoretical perspectives or grand narratives, preferring to let the data either support or call in question existing approaches, as the case may be. He finds this self-denial to be appropriate to what he refers to as a “post paradigmatic world” (p. 6) where the myriad ... Read More

  • Born in the GDR: Living in the Shadow of the Wall by Hester Vaizey
           (review)
    • Abstract: Was the German Democratic Republic (GDR) a Stasiland or a socialist utopia? In her new book, Born in the GDR, Hester Vaizey suggests that while this either/ or dichotomy dominates popular discourse, the reality is far more complicated. Each of the eight chapters in Vaizey’s book relates the story of one individual who was born in the GDR after the Berlin Wall was built in August 1961. Their experiences range from a Vicar’s daughter to a party official’s son, from a PhD student to an attempted escapee who is captured and imprisoned. In relating these eight stories in detail, Vaizey is adamant that they are not a representative sample of the East German population as a whole. They are unrepresentative because they ... Read More

  • Pratiques et Discours de la Contreculture au Québec by Jean-Philippe
           Warren and Andrée Fortin (review)
    • Abstract: In their new book on counter-culture in Quebec, Jean-Philippe Warren and Andrée Fortin introduce a welcome layer to the story of Quebec’s New Left in the 1960s and 1970s. To date, most writing on the period by both insiders and academics (including Warren) has focussed on waves of political activism or the organized bodies that sustained a radical critique of society for most of the 1970s. Warren and Fortin add to our intellectual understanding of the new left through their description of an ambiguous counter-culture that at times provided linkages between feminist, environmental, cooperative, nationalist, and even communist movements, and at other times delineated the differences between them. The ways that ... Read More

  • Les soldats du Pape. Les zouaves canadiens entre l’Europe et
           l’Amérique ed. by Jean-Philippe Warren (review)
    • Abstract: At the present time, it might not seem surprising that a transnational movement of religiously-motivated volunteers has attracted attention. While parallels to radical Islamist movements are generally avoided—and with good reason—it is certainly true that historians’ interest in the multi-national Papal Zouaves is of relatively recent date. After the stream of memoirs, martyrologies, fictional works, and hagiographical accounts had dwindled to a trickle in the early twentieth century, the Papal Zouaves seemed to have sunk into obscurity. Even in the early twenty-first century, it was possible to publish a history of European Catholicism in which they do not merit a single page (Nicholas Atkin and Frank Tallett ... Read More

  • The Color of Modernity. São Paulo and the Making of Race and Nation in
           Brazil by Barbara Weinstein (review)
    • Abstract: L’État de São Paulo, et sa capitale indissociable, est actuellement, et de loin, le plus riche et le plus peuplé des 26 États que compte la Fédération brésilienne. Il contribue pour 22 % de sa population et un tiers de son PIB. S’il était indépendant, São Paulo se classerait parmi les 5 premières économies d’Amérique latine. Du point de vue démographique, les Paulistas (44 millions en 2015) sont plus nombreux que les Argentins (43 millions) et un peu moins nombreux que les Colombiens (48 millions). Ces quelques chiffres signalent la puissance de São Paulo à l’échelle continentale et suggèrent aussi en creux l’importance des inégalités régionales au Brésil. Les manuels de géographie des années 1970 et 1980 faisaient ... Read More
