PIERRE MARIE CARMEL

Université Paris 8 - student

Notice Biographique de Marie Carmel PIERRE Je suis Marie Carmel PIERRE, titulaire d'un M2 de philosophie intitulée « Philosophie et critiques contemporaines de la culture » à l'Université de Paris 8. Je suis actuellement une étudiante d'une promotion de M2 Sciences de l'éducation parcours « Dynamiques Éducatives des Sujets et Institutions » à l'Université de Paris 8. Mes recherches portent sur les dispositifs d'aide aux élèves en difficulté et s'inscrivent dans le champ de la sociologie de la transmission des savoirs et des connaissances. Je m'intéresse aux pratiques pédagogiques des enseignants qui aident leurs élèves, en particulier après les heures de cours. Je cherche à comprendre en quoi et comment, dans les contextes d'apprentissage, les interactions engageant enseignants et élèves participent-elles ou pas à la construction des inégalités scolaires au sein des classes.

April Mayes

The Haitian Studies Association has become an intellectual home to me since I started attending conferences regularly in 2012. I am trained in the history of the Dominican Republic, but in 2010, I co-founded an intellectual, artistic, and social movement network called, Transnational Hispaniola (TH). TH pays homage to and builds upon the efforts of previous generations of scholars, most notably Rubén Silié, María Filomena González, Sabine Manigat, Michel Henri, and Jean Casimir, who collaborated in order to create new histories of the island that featured its non-elite majority. With TH, I have written and managed grants and organized conferences (including logistics, reviewing panel and paper submissions, organizing keynote presentations, designing programs, scheduling etc.).I am interested in building bridges between Latin American and Haitian Studies, something I feel is both timely and urgent given the fact that countries such as Brazil, Chile, Mexico, let alone the Dominican Republic, are home to significant Haitian migrant populations and to generations of their descendants. I have also been challenged by students who wish to see a space for Haiti and Haitians in Latinx Studies. There are a number of Haitian and Haitian-descended scholars in Latin America, publishing in Spanish and Portuguese, in addition to community organizers and heads of organizations advocating for Haitians. The Haitian Studies Association can reach out and incorporate these new populations. Working in bi-lingual, bi-cultural, and bi-national organizations and settings for the last few years has taught me a great deal. I look forward to bringing these lessons to lead efforts to bring the Latin American Haitian diaspora into HSA.
