Not content with the freezing temperatures of Stirling, Bill Marshall has headed somewhere even colder and is currently in Montreal for a trip funded by the British Association of Canadian Studies’ Prix du Québec. He’ll be attending the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois to help develop a projected edited book of essays Quebec Film: Texts and Contexts, and conducting research at the Grande Bibliothèque du Québec for a forthcoming article in Yale French Studies on representations of the first French Empire in contemporary bande dessinée.
Next month, Bill will be giving the annual Christianson lecture at Bristol University on ‘French Atlantic Cities in Translation’ and participating in a panel on Quebec cinema at the Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference in Atlanta. In April, he’ll be giving a talk on Saint-Pierre et Miquelon at New York University, as well as a seminar at Edinburgh University in their ‘Diasporic Trajectories’ series.
And as though all that weren’t enough, Bill’s latest publication – a chapter entitled ‘Buildering, Urban Interventions and Public Sculpture’ – is now out in Christoph Lindner and Shirley Jordan’s edited collection Cities Interrupted. Visual Culture and Urban Space.
We look forward to some postcards…
