Description

Founded in a perspective that speaks to the diversity of contexts and processes used across Canada, this work is nevertheless firmly grounded in theory, offering an in-depth analysis geared toward advanced study in community practice. 

This depth is further strengthened by the diversity of topics represented in this collective work: community work in various regions of the country exploring issues of poverty and environmental activism; community work with immigrants and refugees, and with trans communities; feminist community organizing as well as organizing with persons with disabilities and with members of linguistic communities; and, finally, artsbased community work with the elderly.

This book is published in English.

-

S’il reflète une diversité de contextes et de processus mis en oeuvre partout au Canada, cet ouvrage est toutefois fermement ancré dans la théorie, convenant aux études avancées en pratique communautaire. 

La diversité des sujets que propose cet ouvrage collectif est d’un intérêt particulier, qu’il s’agisse du travail communautaire dans diverses régions du pays explorant les questions de la pauvreté et de l’activisme environnemental; le travail communautaire auprès des immigrants et des réfugiés et avec les communautés de personnes trans; l’organisation de la communauté féministe ainsi que celle des personnes handicapées ou celle des membres de communautés linguistiques, et enfin, le travail communautaire axé sur les arts auprès des personnes âgées.

Ce livre est publié en anglais.

By trade, Judy is a journalist, writer, editor, television news producer, and has been editor-in -chief of a peppy online magazine called rabble.ca. She has worked in TVland for The National on CBC, as well as for counterSpin and Face-Off on CBC Newsworld. Her work has been published in The Writing Space Journal, Kiss Machine, Geist, Canadian Forum, The Toronto Star, and Compass magazine. She spends as much of her summers as she can in a cold-water shack at Camp Naivelt ("New World"). The camp was founded by the United Jewish People's Order (UJPO), and is located just outside the ever-widening GTA belt. It is perhaps the last of its kind in Canada: it was built as a revolutionary kinderland for children of immigrants sweating away for Toronto's shmata trade.
