Once again, we are pleased to present our readers with original research from the annual colloquium on Quebec Studies, held in March 2016. For the fourth consecutive year, scholars, graduate and undergraduate students gathered together to discuss ideas and exchange views about Quebec, past and present. After months of academic review panels, numerous revisions and unfortunately, delays of a more personal nature, the following issue reflects a rich and insightful lens on a dynamic, multifarious and ever-changing society.
