Immigrants from the North: Woonsocket, Rhode Island Revisited
This paper revisits Franco-Canadian immigration into the United States across the northern border at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. With the aid of film clips from Les Tisserands du pouvoir, a film depicting the immigrant contribution to the New England textile industry through the saga of one family, one's understanding of expatriation, relocation, and assimilation will be broadened.
