Lucie K. Morisset is the Canada Research Chair on Urban Heritage, a professor in the Department of Urban and Tourism Studies of the School of Management at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and a researcher at the Interuniversity Centre for Studies on Letters, Arts and Traditions (CELAT).

A historian of urban planning and trained in the history of architecture and anthropology, Lucie specializes in the study of the city and its representations, and is interested in the history of the ideas and objects that make up the built landscape. More generally, her work addresses the relationship between identity and culture as manifested through discourses on the built environment, heritage buildings, tourism practices, and heritage designs. In recent years, her research has focused on planned industrial towns and cities and the role of heritage in local development, particularly in the context of deindustrialization.
