Upcoming Projects

Posted by lamacs On February - 16 - 2011

Comparative Multiculturalism from Transnational & Global Perspectives

Reframing multiculturalism for the 21st century’s realities: An International Symposium
In partnership with Deakin University’s Centre for Citizenship and Globalization (Melbourne, Australia) and AMLAC&S, the symposium will focus on the “challenges” for and “reframing” of multiculturalisms in this century’s global knowledge-economy.

Forthcoming book
Multiculturalism in Indy Cinemas uses the rhizomic research tool to articulate identity as it is represented in independent cinema.

HIV/AIDS Cultural Related Behavioural Change Messages Study

This project will study cellular communication technologies to produce effective-contextualized HIV/AIDS messages in multicultural societies. This pilot project combines cellular communication technologies and virtual sexual and cultural profile in Madagascar to study, produce, implement, and test the most effective means of creating effective and contextualized HIV/AIDS Cultural Related Behavioural Change Messages (HIV/ AIDS-CRBCM) in the context of Africa’s multicultural, multidimensional, and intergenerational reality.

Articulations of memory in cinema

This conference/workshop will focus on an interdisciplinary approach. It is dedicated to the questions of memory in African, diasporic, national, and black cinemas. Representations of memory are linked with the questions of the representations and structures of identity, because they not only shed light on the past but also reflect on actual constructions of the past.

China in Africa today

Archaeology of the articulations and the communicational strategies
This project, conducted by a team of Canadian and African researchers, aims to study the strategies and the communicational articulations used by the Chinese to establish themselves in the everyday life of the African people today. The objective is to understand how people occupy the cultural spaces (political, economical, social, mental, human and geographical) in order to win the affection of African people, but also to understand what the Africans think about it and which part they play in the production of knowledge. This project will produce a new gaze on Chinese-African relationships, their successes, their failures and their understandings.
