Our guest

Patrick Donovan, Ph.D., will talk about the evolution of charitable organizations catering to the English-speaking population of Quebec City from 1759 to now. His talk will highlight the intricate ethnic and religious dynamics that shaped the sector. From the unexpected support of British authorities for Catholic charitable infrastructure to the emergence of distinct assistance networks for various ethno-religious groups, to a more consolidated structure today, this richly-illustrated talk will reflect how the broader English-speaking community of the city has changed over the years.
