Center Hosts Annual Quebec Celebration
The SUNY Plattsburgh Institute on Quebec Studies will present its annual celebration of all things Quebec Tuesday, March 8-Thursday, March 10.
Celebrons Quebec begins March 8 with a lunchtime presentation, “Monologue, Sculpture, Contortion: Examples of Contemporary Performance by Women in Montreal,” by Dr. Erin Hurley, distinguished Fulbright chair in Quebec studies at SUNY Plattsburgh and English professor at McGill University, in Room 103 at the Institute on Quebec Studies, 133 Court St.
A traditional Quebec-style luncheon will be served Wednesday, March 9 beginning at noon at the Court Street facility with a menu that includes tourtiere, maple baked beans and poutine, among other offerings. A $6 contribution covers the cost of the meal.
On Thursday, March 10, Matthew Smith, adjunct lecturer in Canadian studies, will present “Incendies,” a film by Denis Villeneuve about a dying Middle Eastern woman living in Montreal who leaves separate letters to her twin children. The film follows the separate travels of the twins to the Middle East, where they each uncover revelations about themselves. The film is free and open to the public.
Reservations for any or all should be made to Cherice Granger at 518-564-2384 or [email protected].
