Editor’s Note Editor’s Note Québec Studies 57 marks the beginning of the collaboration between the American Council for Québec Studies and Liverpool University Press, as well as the beginning of the fourth decade for this bilingual, interdisciplinary journal. The ACQS–LUP partnership, which includes online access to members and institutional subscribers, will enable us to reach the wider international Francophone Studies community. Readers and contributors will find that the journal’s focus and the editorial process have not changed. There is, however, one important change to announce: after years of dedicated service, Roseanna Dufault has resigned from the editorial team. Professor Dufault has been a stalwart of ACQS for many years, serving as an elected officer, an appointed editor, and our designated representative to the International Council for Canadian Studies. She is leaving her post reluctantly so that she can meet the increased demands of her teaching load while pursuing her active scholarly agenda. We thank her for her tireless efforts in promoting Québec Studies and look forward to her continued participation in our work. Québec Studies 57 opens with a special dossier guest edited by Gilles Dupuis (Université de Montréal) and François Harvey (Collège Édouard-Montpetit) on the early work of Hubert Aquin for RadioCanada and the National Film Board. While Aquin’s novels, essays, and political activities may be familiar to scholars of Québec, his media career has received much less attention. Dupuis and Harvey have compiled a collection of articles that includes a previously unpublished scenario and studies of Aquin’s radio and television dramas and documentary films. In addition to their fine introduction, they each contribute an essay to the dossier and have invited distinguished scholars such as Renée Legris, Renald Bérubé, and Vincent Bouchard to give us a fuller picture of Hubert Aquin’s role in the cultural production of Québec from the late 1950s through the 1970s. Gilles Dupuis and François Harvey were extraordinarily conscientious and meticulous in their work as guest editors and for that I thank them profusely. Québec Studies, 57 doi:10.3828/qs.2014.1
