Major research initiatives and funding agencies are increasingly demanding the formation of large collaborative teams and partnerships. Formal partnerships between academic researchers and community partners can advance knowledge and understanding of critical issues of intellectual, social, economic and cultural significance. By fostering mutual co-operation and sharing intellectual leadership, partnerships can innovate, build institutional capacity and mobilize research knowledge in accessible ways.
In this informal talk, we will introduce the Trois siècles de migration francophones en Amérique du Nord (3 Centuries of Francophone Migration in North America) project. This seven-year year partnership project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada aims to highlight the central place of Francophone migrations in the genesis and evolution of North American populations over a period of three centuries.
The team of community and university partners, researchers and collaborators are studying the collective and individual experience of Francophones, across spatial scales, as they settled the continent with approaches from the geospatial sciences, history, demography, anthropology, demography, geography, heritage, linguistics, folklore and more.
The project includes more than 50 academic partners and over a dozen heritage and community partners, including several here in the Keweenaw. You can read more about the project in Unscripted.
