The Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN) is publishing a brand new anthology entitled Historical Views: Selections from Quebec Heritage News 2000-2020, in honour of the organization’s twentieth anniversary. Edited by Matthew Farfan and Rod MacLeod, the two-volume collection includes an array of 120 articles written by over 60 authors and selected from the first twenty years of QAHN’s quarterly magazine Quebec Heritage News. It is also illustrated with nearly 150 archival and contemporary images in full colour and black and white.
According to QAHN, the subject matter of the anthology focuses on the history and heritage of Quebec’s English-speaking communities, and covers the entire province of Quebec. Topics are divided into 15 chapters ranging from “Local Heroes” to “Indigenous”; from “Settlement and Immigration” to “Industry”; from “Military” to “Burial and Lore,” and more.
“This project has been nearly a year in the making,” said co-editor, and QAHN executive director, Matthew Farfan. “But it’s been a labour of love. And we’re really pleased with the results.”
