LUCILE CHAPUT /  Historian

Lucile Chaput is a doctoral student at the University of Rennes 2 (France). She is currently preparing a doctoral thesis under the supervision of Marc Bergère (Université de Rennes 2) and co-directed by Jonas Campion (Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières). The thesis, entitled "Canadian internment camps: the internment of civilians in Canada during the Second World War", focuses on internment sites. The aim is to highlight the fate reserved for civilians (communists, fascists, Italians, Germans, Japanese, Jewish refugees, enemy merchant seamen), often Canadian citizens, who were considered at one time or another during the conflict to be 'enemies within'.
