Welcome Queen’s Quarterly!

Post Date:
Jul 4, 2017

We are pleased to welcome Queen’s Quarterly to their new home in Douglas Library.  This relocation is a natural fit for the Douglas Library, which is home to McGill Queen’s University Press, and further enables the transition of Douglas Library to a home for digital scholarship, archives, rare books and special collections. 

McGill Queen’s University Press recently moved their reading room to the third floor of Douglas Library, allowing for the vacant offices and now vacant reading room to be occupied by the Queen’s Quarterly. The Queen’s Quarterly will begin their move into Douglas during the week of July 10. There should be minimal noise, though some paint odour, associated with the moves.

The Queen's Quarterly was founded in 1893 by George Monro Grant, Sir Sandford Fleming, and John Watson, and others.  The journal's commitment is to offer both the academic and the general reader a lively collection of analysis and reflection, in fields as diverse as international relations, science policy, literary criticism, travel writing, economics, religion, short fiction, and poetry. Over the years, the list of those who have contributed to the Quarterly is impressive. Sinclair Ross, Margaret Laurence, W.O. Mitchell, Margaret Atwood, Mavis Gallant, Joyce Carol Oates, Al Purdy, Carol Shields, and more recently Emma Donoghue and Helen Humphreys are among the many Canadian writers who found a home in the Quarterly.
