Book Launch: Deindustrializing Montreal by Steven High

August 28, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Book Launch: Deindustrializing Montreal by Steven High

Join us for the launch of Steven High’s new book, Deindustrializing Montreal: Entangled Histories of Race, Residence, and Class.

About this event

Steven High’s new book Deindustrializing Montreal explores the history of Little Burgundy and Pointe Saint-Charles through the oral histories of long-term residents. It includes over 200 historic photographs and other illustrations as well as the art-work of Emanuelle Dufour, Amina Jalabi, and Josh Toal. We learn what it was like to grow up in the two neighbourhoods before the factories closed and how people experienced the effects of urban renewal, factory closures, and gentrification.

Join us in-person for this free event Sunday August 28th (1-3pm) at Batiment 7’s Les Sans Taverne (1900 rue Le Ber) in Pointe-Saint-Charles. It is wheelchair-accessible and has a large patio for maximum COVID-19 safety.

David Austin, one of Canada’s foremost scholars of the Black Radical Tradition, will also say a few words.

We hope you can make it!
