This issue addresses the emergence of modernism and modernity in Quebec, and the ways this process has been influenced by French modernism. The articles presented here grew out of a conference on the effects of French modernism upon the work of QuÃ©bÃ©cois artists and writers, presented in collaboration with Vanderbilt University's W.T. Bandy Center in 2013. The next conference, Cultural Modernism in the Americas 2, is scheduled for April of 2014, and will focus upon Latin America. The proceedings will be published in AmeriQuests in 2015.
