Andrée Lévesque

Andrée Lévesque (born 1939) is a historian specialising in the 20th century history of Québec, the history of the political Left, and women's history. After studies in geography at the University of Montreal and the Université Laval, she gained her Masters and PhD at Duke University.

She lived for eight years in New Zealand, where she was a founding member of the Dunedin Collective for Woman and taught women's history at the University of Otago in 1975 and 1976. She taught at the University of Ottawa from 1978 to 1984, then at McGill University of which she remains Professor Emerita. In 1996, she taught at the Université libre de Bruxelles (Free University of Brussels) in the group chaired by Suzanne Tassier.

Her works focus on marginalised groups and individuals, whether political groups such as the Communist Party of Canada and Québec, or social groups such as convicted women. Her inquiry into the history of resistance to the established order are exemplified by her biographies of the communist militant Jeanne Corbin and of the québécoise free-thinker Éva Circé-Côté.

Lévesque is a member of the ''Groupe d'histoire de Montréal''. She is a founder of the Archive of Past Memories (''Archives Passe-Mémoires'') that collects autobiographical writings. Provided by Wikipedia
