What are the cultural challenges of migration in Canada in the context of «glocalization»? In what areas can we recognise the advent of a specific cultural dimension which, in turn, calls for the development of a model character within the global sphere linked to the knowledge-based society? These are some of the questions addressed by the texts published in this volume with regards not only to social sciences but also to meta-history, history, literature and the use of language.
Quels sont les défis culturels de la migration au Canada dans le contexte du « glocal » ? Peut-on observer dans certains domaines la genèse d’une culture issue du développement des phénomènes migratoires, et qui prendrait la place qui lui revient dans un monde global lié à la société des savoirs ?
