Big Thinking - Joseph Yvon Thériault - Whither francophone cultures in America?

What challenges do Quebec and minority Francophone communities face today? In this Big Thinking event, Joseph Yvon Thériault, Canada Research Chair in Globalization, Citizenship and Democracy at the Université du Québec à Montréal and Royal Society of Canada Fellow, discusses current realities for Francophones in the Americas. Presented in an interview format hosted by Ici Radio-Canada's Daniel Mathieu, the discussion touches on the origins of French America while also emphasizing the distinct evolution of Francophone communities throughout the region (including French-Canada, Louisiana and Acadia). This event is presented in the context of the celebration of 400 years of francophone presence in Ontario.

This event was sponsored by the Royal Society of Canada.
