Research information:

I am particularly interested in mental health. I study the links between social norms and mental issues. I published the following work in 2009 that draws upon this topic:  État dépressif et temporalité: Contribution à la sociologie de la santé mentale (Éditions Liber). My research also focuses on the practice of sport. As such, the Montreal Canadians represent, for me, an incredible mirror of contemporary social demands. I co-edited the book  Le canadien de Montréal: Une légende repensée, (Presses de l’Université de Montréal) in 2011. It investigates the social impact of this great hockey team. I also study  how sport can constitute a tool for psychosocial development, as a part of innovative intervention practices for troubled youth.

Research information:

My research focuses mainly on the question of linguistic justice and confidence in pluricultural contexts. My research on linguistic justice aims to shed light on the reasons for which we need to recognize linguistic rights for certain minorities. My research on confidence aims to better understand the problem of defiance which we find in contexts marked by diversity.
