The Stewart Collection of Canadian and Atlantic History: the challenges of documenting an archival compendium

Free activity | Space is limited, reservation required.

As part of the third edition of the Festival d’histoire de Montréal, the McCord Stewart Museum invites the public to delve into the archives of the Stewart Collection of Canadian and Atlantic History. Shedding light on 18th-century documents and paleography, the workshop will provide history enthusiasts with the tools to browse through the vast archival collection, including close to 900 digitized documents added to the Online Collections.

Louis Lalancette, cultural mediator at the McCord Stewart Museum since 2015 and currently completing a Ph.D. in history at Université Laval in Quebec City, will lead the workshop. His research is focused on the social and military history of New France, and more broadly on the ruling classes of the Atlantic world during the modern era. Louis is involved in a number of research projects and contributes actively toward the dissemination of history through his participation in symposiums, his publications and his media appearances.


Free activity in French, presented on Saturday, May 13 at 1:30 p.m.
Duration: 60 minutes
Location: Atrium of the McCord Stewart Museum
