Chiasma: A Site For Thought

Chiasma: A Site for Thought was established in September 2013 as an annual, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal for the generation and dispersion of theory. While recognizing ‘theory’ as a pursuit born of the crossing of continental philosophy, social and political theory, literary criticism, media studies, and cultural studies, Chiasma: A Site for Thought places emphasis on those genetic moments that displace theory from its history, without abandoning it to an auxiliary position between disciplines. The journal therefore aims at the affirmation of theory’s own powers to recombine and mutate the societal, historical, and academic coordinates from which it comes.

Mouvances Francophones

Mouvances Francophones (MF) est une revue électronique interdisciplinaire, évaluée par des pairs, et dont l’accès est libre. La Revue accepte actuellement des propositions d’articles (en français de préférence) de la part de professionnels qui définissent la francophonie sub-saharienne (ici principalement les écrivains et critiques).

Les écrivains africains s’expriment en français pour atteindre des lecteurs nationaux et internationaux, les ex-colonisés d'Afrique et d'ailleurs, comme les nationaux des pays colonisateurs ou simplement francophones. D'un autre côté, les littératures francophones post-coloniales sont étudiées par rapport à une identité nationale, et nous nous penchons sur le cas de la littérature francophone « Sub-Saharienne ». Les écrivains francophones sont « sénégalais », « congolais », de la diaspora (le cas des Antilles par exemple), sans compter la zone géographique qu'ils habitent effectivement (Afrique, Europe, Amérique), ni l'arbitraire des frontières rectilignes nationales qui ont divisé des communautés naguère homogènes et indépendantes et qui aujourd'hui divisent certaines ethnies en « minorités » englobées avec d'autres ethnies plus fortunées en ce qu'elles sont restées regroupées. Depuis l'indépendance des colonies d'Afrique, la langue française est alors une langue officielle, que les auteurs utilisent infléchie par l'effet local d'interférences linguistiques ou développements insulaires qui diffèrent de la langue académique française, c'est-à-dire de celle des meilleurs écrivains français canoniques dans l'espace géographique et identitaire de « l'hexagone » français—incluant des écrivains africains tel Senghor.

Reprenant le concept d' « ethnicité fictive » d'Etienne Balibar, Christiane Albert estime que le modèle nationaliste européen élaboré par Herder contre « la conception littéraire universaliste française » supposait « une identité 'naturelle' entre une langue, et une nation qui s'exprimait à travers un patrimoine culturel national garant de « l'âme' d'un peuple » (2005). De ce point de vue, il reste paradoxal que la pratique de l'écriture francophone cimente une unité nationale africaine. Néanmoins, surtout en ce qui concerne le roman de mœurs, une des veine sensible des romancières des années 1980, c’est moins l’universalisme qui est visé, mais une attitude spécifique liée à une pratique ou à la forme spécifique d’interaction locale à réformer ou à repenser—et alors par exemple, la langue française permet de prendre à témoins les groupes externes comme adopter d’emblée une perspective « candide » et « moderne » sur une coutume ou une tradition inutilement blessante.

Depuis 2007, le concept de « littérature-monde » suppose un universalisme cosmopolite qui efface les distinctions entre les littératures nationales pour privilégier la communauté linguistique et abolir les frontières par le qualificatif « francophone » comme distinct de l'identité culturelle française de l'hexagone, ou du Québec, ou « belge ». Par ailleurs, le concept de « littérature migrante » multiplie les nuances et les déclinaisons de « frontières » identitaires, et doubles codes linguistiques, dans la langue française (ou hors de la langue française mais avec elle) et le rapport de la langue à la « nation » d'origine ou d'immigration. La « Littérature Tout-Monde » de Glissant suggère une interpénétration des identités sur un modèle Antillais. L'objectif de ce journal est de suivre les « mouvances » de ces concepts apparemment contradictoires de la francophonie traditionnellement désignée comme « Sub-Saharienne » ou de la diaspora africaine antillaise, et d’étudier la question du qualificatif littéraire de « francophone » à l'aide de textes définissants la « Francophonie » et les coopérations culturelles (ici principalement littéraires) qu'elle recouvre.

Pour toute question, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec l’éditrice .

SoTL through the Lenses of the Arts and Humanities

As the community of SoTL scholars has grown across Canada and around the world, however, there has been a growing sense that SoTL work has been dominated by the epistemologies, philosophies, and research methods of the social sciences, a view that has been supported by SoTL journal editors and resources dedicated to introducing faculty to SoTL (Gurung and Schwartz, 2009; Jarvis and Creasey, 2009; McKinney and Chick, 2010; Chick, 2012). To quote Nancy Chick (2012) in a recent book on the current state of SoTL in the disciplines, "while many well-known SoTL leaders come from humanities backgrounds …, the on-the-ground work largely marginalizes the practices of their disciplines."

The question then follows: "How does the apparent under-representation of (arts and) humanities-based disciplines affect expectations for SoTL, from norms for research design and methodology to the genre and style of its products?" (McKinney and Chick, 2010).

This special issue of The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning seeks to explore this question, and also to provide examples of SoTL work that uses the genres, approaches, research designs, theoretical and epistemological frameworks, and methodologies of the arts and humanities to explore key topics in teaching and learning.

Editorial

Happy New Year 2014!

It is the custom at the IIPJ to recap our work from the past year and project out into the next months and look at our plans. First, let me say from all those at the IIPJ, Susan Wingert (Managing Editor), Nicholas Spence (Associate Managing Editor), Patricia Pakvis (Copy Editor), Shyra Barberstock (Technical Associate), the many part-time volunteers, and myself, Jerry White, thank-you so much for your support over the past year. A special thanks to the many academics and policy people that have reviewed submissions and, of course, the authors themselves who have submitted to the International Indigenous Policy Journal.

This was truly a transformative year at the journal with the publication of our 100th article and a further re-doubling of our readership. In December 2013, we had our 69,000th verified reader 1. Most importantly, there were nearly 40,000 article downloads in 2013 alone, which represents a 270% increase over 2012. We have published two special editions this past year: Educational Pathways of Indigenous Learners and Indigenous Early Parenthood. These two editions received a warm reception from many areas of the world readership. There were also two regular editions.

Our plans for 2014 are already in full gear. On January 6th, the Aboriginal Policy Research Consortium (International), with which the IIPJ is affiliated, launched IndigiLINK. IndigiLINK is a social networking and collaboration site for those working in the field of Indigenous research, policy, and service provision. It is a free service for people working on Indigenous issues in a variety of capacities, including professionals, scholars, researchers, policy makers, Indigenous community leaders, Elders, media, Indigenous community members, advocates, service providers, and students. It allows the creation of open and closed groups, teams, councils, et cetera and will, as it grows, allow people to find each other to share ideas, best practices, news, and much more. The platform is secure and has video, meeting, file sharing as well as blog and other exchange capacity.

We also published volume 5, issue 1 in the first week of January. We anticipate publishing two special editions, both of which will touch Indigenous policy issues outside of North America, in the coming year, along with two more regular editions.

We remain committed to our goal of promoting ethical and respectful research that will promote evidence-based policy-making. We also hold to our promise to publish policy work that promotes best practices. For authors we will continue our rapid turnaround times and superior service.

Editor-in-Chief
