A McGill University English professor will discuss English-language theater in Quebec’s eastern townships at the annual Distinguished Fulbright Chair in Quebec Studies Lecture Thursday, April 14, 2 p.m., Krinovitz Recital Hall, Hawkins Hall.

Dr. Erin Hurley will discuss “The Identities of English-Language Theater in Quebec’s Eastern Townships and the Monteregie, and its Ties to the United States” at the annual lecture convened by the Institute on Quebec Studies in its recognition of individuals who have made a significant contribution to Quebec public life. 

Hurley is the author of “National Performance: Representing Quebec from Expo ’67 to Celine Dion,” and “Theatre and Feeling.” Her recent publications include affect in Canadian theater, examining the body in circus performance, and analyzing automation and objectification in contemporary women’s performance in Montreal. The Institute on Quebec Studies has hosted Hurley as its distinguished Fulbright chair in Quebec studies this semester.

“It’s been a great pleasure hosting Dr. Erin Hurley at the Institute on Quebec Studies during the spring 2016 academic semester,” said Dr. Christopher Kirkey, director of the institute. “We look forward to an enlightening and entertaining presentation highlighting (Hurley’s) current research.”
