Québec: A Discourse on Nations | Chapter I - Née dans les lis.

"Québec: A discourse on Nations" is a three-part documentary series exploring the concept of nationhood through the example of the Canadian province of Québec. In these videos we aim to explore the many phases and evolutions of French Canadian identity, while also exploring the history of Canada with a focus on this region of the country.

In this first episode we explore the very origins of this story -- from its very origins. Going from the arrival of the Early First Nations to the aftermath of the British Conquest, looking through the history of New France: The French North American colony, and the reason why there are French people in Canada in the first place. Our objective with this video will be to lay out a comprehensive background to then proceed with the developments of the XIXth century.

A lot of images have been used under public domain and Creative Commons. These are all compiled in the following document. None of the creators endorse my use of their uploads, these are compiled exclusively as footage contemplating the relevant licenses -- which can be found by opening the links.

As for the sources, I am for the time being keeping them private given that I would like to continue using my information exclusively until the series is finished. That is to say, I will post them all in another document once Part III is released.I understand this is a little controversial and, honestly, I'm ambivalent on it. If I see enough people requesting them I will make the ones used for Part I public.
