Clearing the fog from the memory of Papineau
Les Belles Soirées
Presented by the Université de Montréal at the McCord Museum.
With Yvan Lamonde, Professor Emeritus of History and Literature at McGill University
Thousands of Louis-Joseph Papineau’s (1786-1871) recently edited letters finally shed light on his political ideas and provide an understanding of his intellectual evolution. In this three-part series, Yvan Lamonde explores the correspondence of this complex political figure, on whom the Museum itself holds an archival fonds.
