In her lecture, Dr. Eileen M. Angelini, Ph.D. will discuss the influx of over one million French Canadians from Quebec, who came seeking positions in New England textile mills and moved into largely English Protestant communities. Many expected to return to Quebec someday and thus remained loyal to their own traditions, culture, and Roman Catholic beliefs. However, some Protestant communities became fearful of these foreigners and formed branches of the Ku Klux Klan, which tormented French Canadians from Massachusetts to Maine. At one point, New England KKK members outnumbered those in the south.

 

Dr. Angelini, recipient of a Canadian-U.S. Fulbright award as a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Globalization and Cultural Studies for McMaster University, recieved her B.A. in French from Middelbury College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in French studies from Brown University.
