Félix Racine began his bachelor in Political Science at the Université de Montréal but somehow graduated in History, which he pursued at the doctoral level at Yale. Somewhat fittingly, he is now part of a department where historians and political scientists work together. Before coming to John Abbott, Félix taught Ancient History at the universities of St. Andrews (Scotland) and McGill. His interests include the history of geographical knowledge, pre-modern travel and the reception of Greek and Latin science during the Renaissance. He is also on a quest to find the best historical comics.
