Recadrage des études de l’histoire canadienne

Posted by lamacs On juillet - 10 - 2015

Pour de nombreux Canadiens, l’histoire des Afro-Canadiens est limitée à celle du Chemin de fer clandestin, mais il est d’autres histoires canadiennes qui intéressent plusieurs autre chercheurs. Boulou Ebanda de B’béri, professeur en Sciences de la Communication et « Cultural Studies » à l’Université d’Ottawa, et co-rédacteur et chercheur principal du livre « Terre promise: histoire et historiographie de l’expérience des noirs a Chatham-Kent et au-delà, » se joint à nous aujourd’hui pour discuter de ses travaux pour l’histoire afro-canadienne. Regardez l’interview du professeur Boulou Ebada de B’béri avec Piya Chattopadhyay ici. (Interview and anglais seulement)

Le Livre « The Promised Land: : History and Historiography of the Black Experience in Chatham-Kent Settlements and Beyond » a été un des Demi-finalistes 2015 du Prix du livre du président de l’Ontario

Revisiting the Promise: Place and Space in African Canadian Communities

The Promised Land Community-University Research Alliance invites community researchers, educators, museum workers, students, artists and academics to submit proposals for presentations at its fourth annual Public Symposium, Revisiting the Promise: Place and Space in African Canadian Communities, to be held May 6-8, 2011 at the Black Cultural Centre in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The symposium will be built around two central themes:

  1. Multiple perspectives on African Canadian history and community, including comparative perspectives;
  2. Current social justice issues–including work on coerced or indentured labour, race, multiculturalism, the African diaspora and identity in Canada—and their historical context;

We seek a variety of submissions from a broad range of participants across the community-university alliance, and welcome proposals for discussion panels, research papers, poster presentations, artistic work and performance, or discussion of work-in-progress on collaborative initiatives in the areas of education, social justice and public history. Proposals that fit one of the Promised Land Project’s four areas of concentration (History and Archives; Education-Community Links; Media and Theatric Production; Multicultural Dialogue) are particularly encouraged.

Guidelines for submitting proposals

Please submit a 200-word proposal that describes the theme to be explored in your paper/presentation; the method or approach used to address it; and the format (paper, panel, poster, performance etc.) of your presentation. The proposal should also tell us how your presentation is related to the symposium themes, and identify the general area (History and Archives; Education-Community Links; Media and Theatrical Production; Multicultural Dialogue) to which your work will contribute. Proposals, along with your name, and contact information, should be sent via email by October 8, 2010, to Devin Andrews, Promised Land Project Community Coordinator, dandrewsplp@gmail.com Telephone 519.436-0119 x351. A decision from the program committee will be made by November 12, 2010. Some contributors to the symposium will be invited to submit papers for publication.
