  • Album trilingue : français, mi'kmaq, anglais. Cette légende mi'kmaq explique à sa façon quelques-uns des mystères de la rivière Petitcodiac.

  • La transculturalité constitue une nouvelle façon de concevoir les cultures, c´est-àdire non plus comme des îlots distincts, mais plutôt comme des réseaux interactifs de sens et de pratiques. Ces identités transculturelles qui n´entrent pas aisément dans le seul moule d´une nation ou d´une ethnie abondent particulièrement dans les Amériques, par exemple les Chicanos, les Franco-Ontariens, les Créoles et les immigrants de deuxième et de troisième génération. De Québec à l´Argentine, cet ouvrage se penche sur ces identités qui se construisent au carrefour de la similitude et de la différence.

    Transculturality is a new way of viewing culture that sees cultures not as separate islands that are easily differentiated from one another, but as connected and interacting webs of meaning and practice. The Americas in particular offer many examples of transcultural identities that do not fit easily into one national or ethnic mold: Chicanos, Franco-Ontarians, Creoles, and second and third generation immigrants. From Quebec to Argentina, this volume explores these identities which create themselves in a space between sameness and difference.

  • Cet ouvrage souligne le 40e anniversaire du Département de criminologie de l´Université d´Ottawa, fondé en 1968. On y relate l´histoire du département de ses origines à nos jours en mettant l´accent sur les débats théoriques qui ont influencé son approche critique et autoréflexive de la criminologie. Les articles qui le composent s´inscrivent dans cet ordre d´idée en mettant en question la perspective traditionnelle de la criminologie sur divers sujets, notamment les études policières, la santé mentale, la violence politique, le suicide et la prévention du crime. Droits et voix souligne le rôle primordial que joue l´Université d´Ottawa dans la redéfinition de la criminologie et la promotion du militantisme, de la justice sociale et de la compassion. -- This volume commemorates the 40th anniversary of the University of Ottawa´s Department of Criminology, founded in 1968. It relates the history of the department from its origins to today, focusing on the theoretical debates that have influenced its critical and self reflexive approach to criminology. The contributions to this volume continue in that vein by questioning the traditional perspective of criminology on a variety of topics including police studies, mental health, political violence, suicide, and crime prevention. Rights and Voices reveals the significant role that the University of Ottawa has played in redefining criminology to advocate activism, social justice, and compassion.

  • Ricochet is a bilingual collection of word sonnets by one of the chief innovators of the form, Seymour Mayne. It includes three sequences of pithy and evocative poems that encapsulate moments of sharp perception while also drawing attention to instants of humour that suddenly appear in daily life.

    Concise and visual in effect, word sonnets are fourteen line poems, with one word per line. Frequently allusive and imagistic, they can also be irreverent and playful. While informed by other short poetry forms such as the Haiku, Mayne´s word sonnets are deeply influenced by the Talmudic tradition of maxims, proverbs and images that instruct and inform everyday life.

    Presented with an excellent translation of the poems into French, Ricochet is a unique volume that showcases this innovative new form. The collection also includes a short preface by the poet and an introductory essay by the translator on the challenges of translating word sonnets.



    Ricochet est un recueil bilingue de sonnets d´un mot écrits par l´un des principaux innovateurs de cette forme poétique, Seymour Mayne. On y trouve trois séries de poèmes piquants et évocateurs, qui recèlent des moments de perception aiguë, tout en attirant l´attention sur des instants d´humour surgissant tout à coup dans la vie quotidienne.

    Les sonnets d´un mot sont des poèmes de quatorze lignes, concis, ayant un mot par ligne, et à l´effet visuel certain. Souvent elliptiques et imagés, ils s´avèrent aussi parfois irrévérencieux et taquins. Bien qu´inspirés par d´autres formes de courts poèmes, comme le haïku, les sonnets de Seymour Mayne sont profondément liés à la tradition talmudique des maximes, proverbes et images qui éclairent la vie quotidienne.

    Présentant une excellente traduction des poèmes en français, Ricochet est un livre unique qui met en valeur cette nouvelle forme littéraire. L´ouvrage comprend également une courte préface du poète et une introduction de la traductrice sur les défis que comporte la traduction de sonnets d´un mot.

  • The Réserve muséale de la capitale nationale is now a reality. It meets accepted standards of preventive conservation and functionality. Almost twenty years of patience, discussions and planning have gone into achieving this. During this time, the orientation and future direction of the collections also came under basic scrutiny.
    This book details the studies and strategies that underpinned this vast undertaking, and describes some of the measures that helped ensure that the move proceeded smoothly and the principles that guided the organization of the collections in the new, highly functional and secure facilities. The photos and illustrations show the size and uniqueness of the new facilities as well as the care that was given to the artefacts in the national collections during the move.
    A wide range of expertise came into play. Administrators, curators, conservators, engineers, designers, architects, and museology technicians brought their respective skills and determination together in this project. It is time to take stock of all this work and the results. Now that it can at last enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done, in these pages the team responsible for the creation of the new reserve is making its experience public, and gratefully acknowledging the inspiration and advice received from various institutions and colleagues.
