In Memoriam: Émile J. Talbot (1941-2014)
In our sorrow, the ACQS Executive Board wants to pay tribute to Emile Talbot so that those who knew him as a mentor or friend can take a moment to celebrate his life and those who did not know him personally can appreciate him. And what a rare and wonderful person he was — brilliant scholar, dedicated and inspiring teacher, hardworking administrator, generous collaborator, warm and sympathetic friend, devoted husband and father. Although quiet and modest in demeanor, he was a giant in our field. His contributions to Québec and Francophone Canadian literary studies, to the American Council for Québec Studies, to Québec Studies, and to Canadian Studies cannot be measured. Although family responsibilities kept him away from ACQS and ACSUS conferences in recent years, he continued to write and publish articles and to review journal submissions. More
Congratulations to Nicholas Giquère for recognition of his Québec Studies article «Le paratexte comme lieu de sociabilité : la collection "Les Poètes du Jour" (1963-1975) des Éditions du Jour» by Fonds de recherche du Québec.
