The Centre was launched in 2012 with the aim of consolidating and developing Quebec and French-Canadian Studies in the UK.
As a linguistically and culturally separate entity within the primarily Anglophone subcontinent of North America, Quebec and French Canada offers a unique opportunity for cultural and literary research. The Centre exists to advance that research by organizing conferences and workshops that bring together local and international specialists in the field, training postgraduates, and creating digital resources, including contributing to the Institute’s postgraduate online research training programme (PORT).
