Newly funded projects in partnership with Page-Rwanda


COHDS is proud to announce two newly funded SSHRC projects in partnership with Montreal’s Rwandan community. (1) COHDS and Page-Rwanda were awarded a four-year Partnership Development grant from SSHRC to develop an innovative online “Living Archives of Rwandan Exiles and Survivors in Canada / Archives vivantes des Rwandais exilés au Canada suite au génocide et aux violences antérieures / Ubuhamya bw’Abanyarwanda bahungiye muri Canada Jenoside n’itotezwa ryayibanjirije.” The project will also involve substantial tools development, including a new web application of Stories Matter and a data visualization tool that will allow us to identify patterns across an entire interview collection. Congratulations Steven High, Callixte Kabayiza, Emmanuel Habimana, Sébastien Caquard and, Lu Xiao. (2) Sébastien Caquard also received a SSHRC Insight Grant, with Steven High, Sabine Bergler, and Catherine Dominquès, for “Des récits à la carte: méthodologies, technologies et approches sensibles pour cartographier des récits de vie de réfugiés rwandais.” This project will develop a new narrative mapping tool that will enable us to visualize spatial patterns within, between and across survivor interviews. Both projects build directly on the Montreal Life Stories project.
