The Guide to Creative Montréal's Quartier Latin, Centre-Sud and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) tour offers a foray into the fields of performing arts, visual arts (art galleries and public artworks), digital arts, music and design. At the eastern end of the Quartier des Spectacles, the Quartier Latin spreads out around the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and its arts scene is closely linked to the university, as live venues and art galleries can be found right on the UQAM campus. Heading east, the tour then crosses the trendy and proud working-class neighbourhoods of Centre-Sud and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, with countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.
Key French-language theoretical texts on comics translated into English for the first time The French Comics Theory Reader presents a collection of key theoretical texts on comics, spanning a period from the 1960s to the 2010s, written in French and never before translated into English. The publication brings a distinctive set of authors together uniting theoretical scholars, artists, journalists, and comics critics. Readers will gain access to important debates that have taken place among major French-language comics scholars, including Thierry Groensteen, Benoît Peeters, Jan Baetens, and Pierre Fresnault-Deruelle, over the past fifty years. The collection covers a broad range of approaches to the medium, including historical, formal, sociological, philosophical, and psychoanalytic. A general introduction provides an overall context, and, in addition, each of the four thematic sections is prefaced by a brief summary of each text and an explanation of how they have influenced later work. The translations are faithful to the originals while reading clearly in English, and, where necessary, cultural references are clarified.
