1st prize: Anne Wade, Centre for the study of learning and performance, Concordia University

Anne Wade was trained in Library Studies (MLIS, 1986), and her career as a research professional at the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance (CSLP) spans two and a half decades (including research, publishing, teaching, administration, and numerous professional service roles). Established in 1988 by a small group of researchers in the field of Education, the CSLP is currently a FRQSC Regroupements stratégiques.

As the CSLP's Manager, she has been an active member of the Learning Toolkit software and systematic review project teams; a co-investigator or collaborator on more than 60 external grants, donations and contracts; a co-author on 50 journal articles or book chapters; a co-author on over a hundred final reports to funding agencies and foundations, policy briefs etc; and has (co-)delivered over 200 presentations and workshops. She has been a lecturer at Concordia University since 1993, and currently teaches an online course designed to teach research skills to undergraduates.

She is recipient of the Eastern Canada Chapter, Special Libraries Association Member of the Year Award, 2000, the 2008 American Psychological Association Excellence in Librarianship Award, the English Montreal School Board Volunteer of Distinction Award, 2013 and the Anne Galler Award for Outstanding Library Service, 2016.

2nd prize: Martin Fournier, Institut du patrimoine culturel, Université Laval; Canada Research Chair in Heritage, affiliated with CELAT

Martin Fournier, doctor of history, has been working as a research professional at Université Laval under researcher-professor Laurier Turgeon since 2006. His interest in research on the history of New France and the heritage of French-speaking North America is coupled with a passion for the dissemination of knowledge, both in written form and with the help of new communication technologies.

Coordinator of the Encyclopedia of French Cultural heritage in North America  since the earliest stages of this Web-based work, he also participated in the development of the Discover Québec mobile application and is currently working on the Canada-wide Francophone Heritage, Cultural and Tourism Corridor project. His many specialized papers, public lectures, television appearances, teaching contracts, scholarly publications and the historical novels based on his research on Radisson have kept him extremely busy.

He won a Mérites du français dans les technologies de l'information (TI) award in 2014 for the quality of his documentary texts. His young adult novel L'Enfer ne brûle pas, the first volume of the Aventures de Radisson series, earned him a Governor General's Literary Award in 2011.

3rd prize: Carl St-Pierre, Department of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering, Polytechnique Montréal

Carl St-Pierre has been a statistician and research professional at Polytechnique Montréal for 24 years. Over time, he has forged strong, lasting relationships with research teams at HÉC Montréal, ESG-UQAM and the Center for Interuniversity Research and Analysis of Organizations (CIRANO) through the production of scientific papers (more than 400) and professional publications, many of which have received awards and honours.

With an M.Sc. in mathematics (specialization in statistics), Carl St-Pierre contributes to the conception and co-development of grant applications and research methodologies, empirical studies, data analysis and the dissemination of research results.

He contributes significant to the advancement, mobilization and transfer of methodological and statistical knowledge within Québec's university community. His philosophy consists of innovating in the use of various methodologies and statistical analysis methods from other disciplines. His mentorship of students and researchers (more than 170 over the course of his career) makes him an indispensable member of the teams with whom he works.

Carl St-Pierre makes a positive contribution to team life by encouraging students with patience and enthusiasm, demystifying statistics and collaborating with researchers.

 

2016

Marie-Frédérique Desbiens, coordonnatrice scientifique de l'équipe « La vie littéraire au Québec »

Marie-Frédérique Desbiens est coordonnatrice scientifique de l'équipe « La vie littéraire au Québec » depuis huit ans, après y avoir œuvré comme auxiliaire de recherche tout au long de ses études supérieures. Au sein de cette équipe, Marie-Frédérique Desbiens coordonne la production d'une série d'ouvrages collectifs qui retracent l'histoire des pratiques littéraires francophones au Québec de 1764 jusqu'au seuil des années 1960.

Intégrée au Centre de recherche interuniversitaire sur la littérature et la culture québécoises, le CRILQ, Marie-Frédérique Desbiens assume tout un éventail de tâches, comprenant la rédaction de demandes de subvention, la gestion budgétaire, la formation de la relève et la promotion de la recherche.

En tant que titulaire d'un doctorat en littératures française et québécoise, l'implication de Marie-Frédérique Desbiens s'étend bien au-delà de ses attributions de professionnelle de recherche. Sa spécialisation reconnue en histoire littéraire lui permet d'intervenir sur le plan scientifique auprès des chercheurs de son équipe. C'est ainsi que dans le tome 7 de la série, en cours d'écriture, elle sera co-responsable du chapitre sur le roman. De plus, ses connaissances dans les digital humanities lui permettent d'orchestrer avec brio le virage numérique du projet, impliquant la gestion d'outils statistiques complexes.

Marie-Frédérique Desbiens fait preuve d'une passion débordante pour la littérature d'ici, qui dépasse les frontières du milieu académique. Elle a signé des articles et prononcé des conférences dans différents contextes scientifiques et publics.

 

Since 2002, the Association des doyens des études supérieures au Québec (ADÉSAQ) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec have offered an annual competition that recognizes doctoral dissertations that made unusually significant and original contributions to their academic field during the previous year.

To be eligible, applicants must have met all requirements of a doctoral program and the final version of their dissertation must have been submitted between January 1 and December 31 of the previous year. Every ADÉSAQ member institution may present up to three applicants, that is to say, one from each research aera.

Ariane Beaulieu a impressionné le comité en raison de la qualité de son projet intitulé Le fléau de l'automutilation chez les adolescentes et les adolescents. D'ailleurs, son intention explicite de poursuivre la recherche sur ce thème n'est pas passée inaperçue. Sa détermination à allier recherche et enseignement, d'une part, et son intention de mettre la recherche au service de la société, d'autre part, ont retenu l'attention. Finissante en sciences humaines au cégep de Limoilou, Ariane Beaulieu reçoit la mention étudiante-chercheuse étoile pour le secteur de la société et de la culture.
