Jacques Daignault is a curriculum theorist
at the University of Québec at Rimouski: Campus Lévis.
(Lévis is across the river from Québec city.) His
present interests revolve around the GNU open-source movement
as both a philosophical and pedagogical occasion towards eliminating
the digital divide, particularly on the international level (several
countries in Africa) and within local community-based organizations.
His website at
Lévinux explains these endeavors as well as the cooperative
ACANTIC he has formed to enable him to actualize both these provincial
and international efforts. (http://levinux.org) His recent book (H)opéra
pour Geneviève witnesses his political, existential
and theological preoccupations which take form in a philosophical,
pedagogical, novel-like story wherein writing autobiographically
in education is portrayed alongside its neglected epistemological,
poetical and methodological indispensables. The book is presently
being translated and should be available in the fall, 2002. His
principal interest remains what Contemporary French Literature
and Philosophy bring to education.
