Book Description:
'Negotiating identity in 19th and 20th Century Montreal' illuminates the cultural complexity and richness of a modernizing city and its people. The chapters focus on sites where identities were forged and contested over critical decades in the city's history. Readers will discover the link between the production of identity, place, and historical moment, as they meet vagrant women, sailors in port, unemployed men of the Great Depression, elite families, widows, youth, students, shopkeepers, and female smokers as well as reformers, notaries, social workers, and educational authorities. Collectively, the contributors explore the intermediate spaces between the state, the voluntary sector, and the people, probing the in between institutions of reform, shelter, education, and control, and of the processes that took people between homes and cemeteries, between families and shops, and onto the streets. This book will be of interest to a wide range of social and cultural historians, critical geographers, students of gender studies, and those wanting to know more about the fascinating past of one of Canada's most lively cities.
