Title
Sense of Belonging Among English-speaking Youth in Québec : Confronting Isolation Through Digital Community Building
Abstract
Since the onset of Covid-19, community has come to inhabit a digital medium for many of Québec’s English-speaking youth. But what does this mean in concrete terms? How is this linguistic minority using social media, and in what manner are they experiencing this digital shift? Will they want to keep having online events going forward? Our paper observes the digital behavior of young (aged 16-30) English-speaking Québecers from March 2020 until the current moment in the pandemic’s development.
