Appointment of new Francophone Editor of the Canadian Journal of Education
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am very pleased to announce the appointment of the new Francophone Editor for the Canadian Journal of Education. Dr. Carole Fleuret of the University of Ottawa will commence her appointment on July 1, 2018. Dr. Fleuret has a bachelor’s degree in remedial education and a master’s degree and doctorate in teaching French from the Université de Montréal. She has done research on writing socialization, as well as on spelling and the study of the socio-cognitive and cultural components involved in the appropriation of second-language texts using approximate spellings and young adult literature. She is interested in minority populations, multi-ethnic and plurilingual communities and an intercultural approach. She is a researcher with the CNRS Praxiling Laboratory in Montpellier, France.
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Dr. Rollande Deslandes, who has been Francophone Editor of the Journal for the past six years. During Dr. Deslandes’ tenure, the number and quality of French submissions to CJE increased dramatically; 2018 will be the first year that the CJE will publish an equal number of French and English articles. Francophone scholars from across Canada and throughout the French-speaking world found in Dr. Deslandes a dedicated and conscientious editor who was generous in providing advice and support, but always with the expectation that authors would produce the highest quality work. The CJE’s excellent status among academic journals in Canada is due in no small part to Dr. Deslandes’ exacting standards. Dr. Deslandes gave countless hours to the Journal over the past six years, and for this, we are extremely grateful.
