Directeur  de La Cité universitaire francophone (1er juillet 2017 - 30 juin 2022)

Emmanuel Aito 2017

À la suite du recrutement à l’échelle nationale effectué conformément à la politique de l’Université, Dena McMartin (PhD), vice-rectrice associée (enseignement et recherche) a recommandé à la rectrice, Mme Timmons, que M. Emmanuel Aito (PhD) soit nommé directeur de La Cité universitaire francophone, à compter du 1er juillet 2017, pour un mandat de cinq ans. La rectrice a accepté cette recommandation et M. Aito a accepté la nomination offerte par Mme Timmons.

M. Aito est directeur intérimaire de La Cité universitaire francophone depuis août 2016. Il s’est joint au Département de français de l’Université de Regina en 1998. Il est titulaire d’une maîtrise (1992) et d’un doctorat (1999) de l’Université Dalhousie où il a étudié sous la direction de Rotislav Kocourek. Son enseignement et sa recherche portent principalement sur la linguistique française, en particulier le langage spécialisé et la terminologie. Dernièrement, ses recherches ont porté sur la glottopolitique (au carrefour du langage, de la réglementation et de la politique) ainsi que sur les dimensions interculturelles de la terminologie en adhérant à de nouvelles stratégies qui privilégient l’usage réel et la créativité lexicale. Il travaille actuellement sur le langage et la démocratisation du discours politique ainsi que sur la théorisation de la terminologie interculturelle dans une langue minoritaire nigériane.

Soulignons aussi qu’il a jeté l’ancre du programme de maîtrise au Département de français en élaborant de nouveaux cours, et en recrutant et encadrant avec succès plusieurs étudiants à la maîtrise jusqu’à l’obtention de leur diplôme. Au fil des années, certains sont devenus ses collègues à La Cité. Il poursuit ce recrutement pour le Programme de maîtrise en études francophones et interculturelles au Canada et à l’extérieur du pays.

En 2006, M. Aito devient directeur du Département de français et remplit deux mandats consécutifs de cinq ans, et simultanément, en 2013, est directeur intérimaire du Département des langues internationales. Sous sa direction, le Département de français a subi une refonte radicale et a entrepris une évaluation exhaustive de ses programmes. Ceci a abouti à l’adoption de nouveaux contenus de cours et à une orientation pédagogique fusionnant délibérément l’intérêt des étudiants pour la langue, la culture et la société, fait reflété dans le nouveau nom de Programme en études francophones et interculturelles. Cet effort a entraîné l’inclusion d’un large éventail de sujets relevant des sciences humaines et sociales tout en offrant des programmes qui sortent du cadre traditionnel des études en langues modernes.


M. Aito aime travailler en collaboration avec ses collègues et passer de bons moments en compagnie d’amis proches et de sa famille, en particulier avec ses petits-enfants.

Mme McMartin tient à remercier les membres du comité, Florent Bilodeau, Fadila Boutouchent, Mary-Jennifer Egbulé, Douglas Farenick, Ian Germani, Céline Magnon, Jérôme Melançon et Abdoulaye Yoh d’avoir pris part à ce processus de recrutement.  Elle voudrait  également remercier Nancy Kazeil des Ressources humaines et  Bryanna Butz du Bureau du provost.

Director of La Cité universitaire francophone (1 July 2017 - 30 June 2022)


Following a national search conducted according to University policy, the Associate Vice-President (Academic and Research), Dr Dena McMartin, has recommended to President Timmons that Dr Emmanuel Aito be appointed as Director of La Cité universitaire francophone for a five-year term effective 1 July 2017. President Timmons has accepted the recommendation, and Dr Aito has accepted the University's offer of appointment.

Dr Aito has served since August 2016 as acting director of La Cité universitaire francophone. He joined the Department of French at the University of Regina in 1998. He received both his MA (1992) and his PhD (1999) from Dalhousie University, studying under the mentorship of Dr Rostislav Kocourek. His primary area of teaching and research is French linguistics, with a particular focus on specialized language and terminology. In the last few years, he has been developing a body of work in glottopolitics (the intersections of language, policy and politics) and the intercultural dimensions of terminology, while espousing new approaches that privilege actual usage and lexical creativity. He is currently working on language and democratization, political discourse as well as theorizing intercultural terminology in a Nigerian minority language.

He has been the anchor of the graduate program in the French Department, developing new courses and successfully recruiting and mentoring several MA students to graduation, some of whom have returned over the years to be colleagues at La Cité. He continues to recruit from far and near into the MA program in Études francophones et interculturelles.

In 2006, he assumed the headship of the French Department, and thereafter held two consecutive five-year terms, while concurrently serving in 2013 as interim Head of International Languages. Under his leadership, the Department of French underwent a sweeping review and embarked on a comprehensive evaluation of its programs. This exercise led to the adoption of new course contents and a pedagogical orientation that purposely merge students’ interests in language, culture and society, a fact reflected in the new name of the Program in Études francophones et interculturelles. This effort has resulted in the embrace of a wide gamut of interests in the Humanities and Social Sciences, while serving up programs that escape the traditional confines of modern language studies.

Dr Aito relishes working collaboratively with colleagues, and spending time with close friends, family, especially with his grandchildren.

Dr McMartin wishes to thank the members of the Search Advisory Committee for their participation in this search process: Florent Bilodeau, Fadila Boutouchent, Mary-Jennifer Egbulé, Douglas Farenick, Ian Germani, Céline Magnon, Jérôme Melançon, and Abdoulaye Yoh. Thanks are also due to Nancy Kazeil of Human Resources, and Bryanna Butz of the Provost's Office.

President Timmons has accepted the recommendation, and Dr Farenick has accepted the University's offer of appointment.

Dr Farenick received his PhD from the University of Toronto and held a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Université de Montréal before coming to the University of Regina in 1992. His research in pure mathematics (in particular, operator algebra theory, functional analysis, linear algebra, and applications to quantum information theory) has been supported by NSERC since 1993, and to date he has authored or co-authored 48 peer-reviewed journal articles and two books, the most recent of which was published by Springer (New York) in November 2016. Dr Farenick has also supervised or co-supervised six PhD candidates to completion, as well as four postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad. He currently supervises two PhD candidates and one externally funded postdoctoral fellow. Dr Farenick also has extensive experience in teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.

Dr Farenick’s extracurricular interests include swimming, cycling, and running. He competes in masters-level swim meets and half-ironman triathlons, and he has completed two marathons in the last five years.

An alumnus of the University of Regina, Dr Farenick graduated in 1984 with a BSc degree in mathematics and computer science. From 2000 to 2002 he served the Faculty of Science as Assistant Dean (Research), and was Acting Associate Dean (Research) during the 2009-10 academic year. Dr Farenick was Head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics from 2012 to 2016, and he has served as Acting Dean of Science since July 2016.
