Abstract:

This note gives an overview of how Orientalism was introduced to Quebec and how its sporadic relations with Asia became permanent at the turn of the twentieth century. A special focus on India demonstrates that Orientalism can also provide a way of understanding the impact that two distant peoples and regions have on each other. In Quebec, four vectors promoted an interest in India: the Compagnie des Indes, the British colonial network, Montreal's bourgeoisie and the missionary organizations. This concerted interest made Asia Quebec's first contact with a non-European outside world.
