Québec City, QC
My research interests are in politicizing and complexifying:
1) open-source alternatives for international education (to resist
augmenting the digital divide); 2) critical and creative engagement
with sociotechnoscientific controversies (via Actor Network Theory,
Foucault's normalization and Deleuze's rhizome); and 3) performativities
of citizenship (in light of increasing neoliberalist strongholds).
I presently work in Gabon and Morocco (Africa) and
eventually hope to work in Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam. My specific
interests in these countries are feminist-based (enabling women)
and technology-oriented (implementing Linux operating systems,
particularly in outlying areas).
I am presently undertaking a book as co-editor with
Michael Flower to re-verbalize Actor Network Theory in Education
(Peter Lang). Several recent articles pertain to the implementation
of Linux in both Gabon, Africa (at the École Normale Supérieur)
and in a secondary biology classroom here in Québec City.
At Educational Insights I founded Diary, a site
for reflections on "how are you living hope?" (a different kind
of article, interactive in nature although limited in time) and
edited an issue on Autobiography (Récits de vie) of innovative
work done in this area by both masters and doctoral students of
Jacques Daignault. (See Trouver l’équilibre herméneutique—Finding
hermeneutical balance, v09n02 in Archives.)
In terms of service:
I am currently vice-president of CACS at CSSE and one
of two webmasters for IAACS (International Association for the
Advancement of Curriculum Studies: http://www.iaacs.org/) The site
(initiated by Bill Pinar) will be officially launched shortly but
PLEASE feel free to go and join now as it is totally operational!
The interface is possible in MANY languages!
