La Wicca au Québec/ The Wiccan Movement in Quebec
portrait d’une religion de sorcellerie contemporaine/ A Portrait of a Contemporary Witchcraft Religion
This study is a first in depth look at a contemporary witchcraft, known as Wicca, in the francophone province of Quebec in Canada. Taking an ethnographic approach and placing itself within the context of two different languages and world, views this study evaluates the Wiccan experience in Quebec, arguing that this particular group claims a religious rather than spiritual relation with the world.
“Gagnon carefully maps the dual nature of Wiccan practice, which includes both individual or solitary practitioners and group practice or covens. She makes extensive use of qualitative research methods in an ethnographic tradition, including participant observation, interviews, and focused questionnaires to create a triangulated research methodology.” - Lori G. Beaman, Canada Research Chair in the Contextualization of Religion in a Diverse Canada, University of Ottawa
