Research Interests

My works cover the domains of post-colonial discourse and focuses on inter-racial relations. It will be very important, in my opinion, to bring a socio-linguistic aspect to the new program of ethnocultural diversity. In this vein, I would like to bring my contributions to the studies of relations between French communities of Canada and other Canadian minorities. I am also interested in teaching a French or bilingual course in this domain. I hope we will discuss these matters in the next meeting.
