La Semaine de la fierté française/acadienne: loisirs et construction identitaire de la jeunesse acadienne et francophone du Nouveau-Brunswick

March 31, 2021


For more than a decade, the Semaine de la fierté française/acadienne (French/Acadian Pride Week) has been one of the most iconic activities of the francophone youth association Activités-Jeunesse. Through its activities, the event was both a microcosm and a catalyst of concerns and interests of Francophones and Acadians of New Brunswick high schools. True vector and indicator of the debates having preoccupied the French-speaking and Acadian youth of the 1970s and 1980s, this study analyses the role of this event and its activities in shaping identity debates (French-speaking, youth, Acadian and regional), that animated the members of the association.
