Le mythe des deux solitudes. Des relations entre les psychiatres francophones et anglophones dans le Montréal des années 1950

This paper draws upon archives of institutions and medical journals to examine the relations between Francophone and Anglophone psychiatrists in Montreal during the 1950s. It shows both the diversity and also the increase of exchanges and collaborations between these two communities from 1948 to 1961. It contributes to the deconstruction of a traditional historiography that distinguishes and opposes Francophone and Anglophone psychiatry in Quebec as two parallel systems, or even as two solitudes.
