Anne-Marie is a MA History student at Université du Québec à Montréal (Québec, Canada). Her thesis examines the phenomenon of Canadian corporate philanthropy at the turn of the twentieth century. She studies the philanthropic practices of Montreal firms associated with the financing of three general hospitals in Montreal between 1880 and 1915, and suggests an analysis of the economic, social and political implications of corporate benevolent activities. Her research is supported by the Centre d’histoire des régulations sociales, the Laboratoire d'histoire et de patrimoine de Montréal, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She regularly works as a historical researcher in a variety of contexts (university, museums, playwriting processes, historical societies, archives).
