I am a graduate student currently writing up research based on
discussions with women in Montreal about Quebec's birth-rate. My research
shows that the attention to the birth-rate in Quebec reflects more than
concerns about the relative numbers of francophones to other language
groups in the province and Canada. My informants also see the declining
birth-rate as a manifestation of an increasing individualism and
consumerism among francophones, blurring a set of dichotomies which have
long been seen to distinguish anglophones from francophones in the
province. I would like to present a paper based on this research at the
AAA meetings. Does anyone know of an appropriate panel?
