Lucie K. Morrisset
Canada Research Chair and Professor, Urban and Touristic Studies at ESG UQAM / Urban Heritage, Canada
Lucie K. Morisset holds the Canada Research Chair on Urban Heritage. She is a professor of Urban and Touristic Studies at ESG UQAM and a researcher at the Centre interuniversitaire d’études sur les lettres, les arts et les traditions (CÉLAT).
A historian of architecture specializing in the study of cities and their representations, she is interested in the history of the ideas and objects of urban planning. For some years she has been leading research into the morphogenesis and semiogenesis of the built landscape and the relationships between identity and culture as they are manifested throughout the practices of heritage and the production of the heritage discourse and on the transformation of concepts of heritage, which have led her to consider heritage and city from the viewpoint of local development.
A Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Lucie K. Morisset was awarded the Prize for Excellence in Research from the Université du Québec and the Prix de la francophonie (AUF) in human and social sciences. In 2017-2018, Morisset was mandated by the OCDE to study the impact of the MMFA on local development.
