Prof. Edith-Anne Pageot is a specialist of modernisms in Quebec and Canada, I am interested in historiography, the relationship between art and craft, and the interdisciplinary, transcultural and transnational logic that permeate the modes of production, exhibition and reception of art objects. Two major questions underlie and shape my research path and serve as a guiding thread for the different bodies of work studied: how to (re)conceptualize the relationships between canons and margins without denying the fractures and their distressing effects? How can we practise an ethically, responsible art history based on epistemological decentration in order to contribute to the development of research and teaching environment aimed at rebuilding the modalities of living together? Among my current research projects, I am preparing a monograph pertaining to, Artistic Culture at Manitou College. Agentivity and Self-Determination Strategies (SSHRC), a research that benefited from the collaboration of Camille Callison, Vice-President of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations (CFLA-FCAB) and Chair of the Aboriginal Issues Committee. I am collaborating in the creation of the first Massive open online course in French on Indigenous arts. This project is the result of a partnership between UQAM and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
Another current research project examines the use of fibre in modern and contemporary arts in Quebec from a transcultural and transnational perspective. (FRQSC 2021-2024 PAFARC 2021-2022).
