Transatlantic Exchanges: Histories, Cultures, and Languages Beyond National Borders.

The University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Education invites you to attend a virtual conference in partnership with Louisiana State University entitled: Transatlantic Exchanges: Histories, Cultures, and Languages Beyond National Borders.  This conference seeks to establish relations and educational exchanges between peoples who share French and Creole transatlantic cultures, languages, and identities in North America towards re-historicizing the educational landscape of marginalized Franco/Afro/Indigenous/Creole activist communities. Elder Jenny Tenasco will welcome and open our virtual exchanges.

There will be two panel presentations with simultaneous translations. Our invited speakers include Monique Verdin from the Houma Nation, Christian Coocoo from the Atikamekw community, Professors Petra Hendry and Joyce Jackson from Louisiana State University, as well as Professors Phyllis Dalley and Awad Ibrahim from the University of Ottawa. 

This conference will occur on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern time zone) via Zoom. To register:
