An Introduction

(p.1) 1 From French Canada to Québec
Beheading the Saint
Geneviève Zubrzycki
University of Chicago Press

The book’s introduction presents the case and the empirical questions, discusses the theoretical framework and methodology, and specifies the book’s three main objectives: The first is theoretical and aims to interpret the role of religious and secular ideologies and practices in the making of national identity and its transformation. The second objective is empirical: it seeks to highlight the role of symbolic politics in shaping new identities and advancing institutional transformations. The third objective of Beheading the Saint is to provide a methodological blueprint for a visual and material sociology of identity transformation.

Keywords:   quiet revolution, Quebec, secularization, cultural sociology, materiality studies
