Charlotte holds a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of Montréal. Passionate about identity issues and intercultural relations, she has developed several research projects on these themes. Her master’s thesis dealt with identity dynamics of Guadeloupean youth from hip-hop culture and from disadvantaged neighborhoods. She has maintained a particular interest in populations considered marginalized or stigmatized with the aim to work with community to move beyond prejudices. She has also developed a community-based research for the Table de concertation des organismes au service des personnes réfugiées et immigrantes (TCRI) about the intercultural program that pairs a newcomer in Quebec and a member of the host society. Before becoming passionate about anthropology, Charlotte completed a Bachelor in Communication at the University of Nice in France and at the University of Western Ontario & Nunavut and she worked for various newspapers in Guadeloupe.
