Biographie

Je suis professeure agrégée à l’École des sciences de l’activité physique (Sciences du loisir). Je me suis inscrite à Queen's University afin de devenir psychologue sportive. Mais en travaillant pendant plusieurs étés au Nunavut, dans les Territoires du Nord‑Ouest et dans le Nord de l’Alberta, je me suis de plus en plus intéressée aux aspects socioculturels des sports et des loisirs.

J’ai donc décidé de mener ma recherche de doctorat, financée par le CRSH, sur la participation des femmes Dénées aux jeux organisés de leur culture. Je me concentre tout particulièrement sur la production discursive des interprétations de la tradition et de l’égalité des sexes, ainsi que des rôles que jouent les rapports de pouvoirs et les politiques sur la production de ces interprétations. Cette recherche extrêmement spécialisée traite, d’une façon ou d’une autre, des disciplines suivantes : sciences du loisir, anthropologie, étude des Autochtones et étude de la condition féminine.

De manière générale, ma recherche porte sur : la participation des Autochtones à des activités de loisir et, tout particulièrement, les traditions menstruelles liées aux activités de loisir auxquelles s’adonnent les femmes autochtones; les jeux organisés des Dénés; les Jeux d’hiver de l’Arctique; le programme de sports nautiques des T. N‑O. ainsi que la question de l’égalité des sexes et de ses répercussions sur les politiques des communautés du Nord en matière de sport et de loisir; les interprétations contestées de la « tradition »; la comparaison, entre diverses cultures, des interprétations ayant trait au sexe, à l’égalité des sexes et à la notion de loisir; le poststructuralisme féministe; enfin, les activités de loisir chez les Autochtones et leur lien avec l’hygiène de vie de ces communautés.
