About the Event

Join us in welcoming Monique Milia-Marie-Luce, who will speak about the migratory flux of the French West Indies, in French.

“On évoque peu ou pas assez la part des colonies françaises dans les flux migratoires francophones vers l’Amérique. En 1910-1911, des femmes et quelques hommes issus de la colonie de la Guadeloupe ont été recrutés pour travailler comme domestiques au Canada. C’est un événement intéressant à plus d’un titre. En effet, le Canada est un pays officiellement ouvert à l’immigration, mais où les entrées des Asiatiques et des Noirs sont limitées. Il concerne aussi les Etats-Unis, avec un transit à Ellis Island et surtout des recrutements organisés par un ancien Consul Américain.”

Monique Milia-Marie-Luce is a winner of the 2022 Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence scholarship at UNC Charlotte. She is from Martinique, French West Indies. She has a PhD in History. She is Associate Professor of Contemporary History at the Université des Antilles (University of the French West Indies), Martinique. She is a member of the research laboratory Aihp-Geode EA-927, working on Caribbean Industrial Archeology, History, Heritage, Geography, Development, and Environment. She is also a fellow of the Institut Convergences Migrations (CI Migrations). She has taught undergraduate and graduate history courses on the Caribbean, the history of the European Union, the political history of France in the 19th century, international relations in the 20th century, history and comics.

A Q&A will be monitored after the presentation by Corinne Bertin, director of classes at AF Charlotte, NC chapter. The questions could be asked in English.
