Abstract

The author was raised in rural Southern France. His passion for geography was revealed very early listening to his grandfathers African adventures or exploring the gorgeous surrounding nature. After graduating (maîtrise) in geography from the University of Montpellier-lll, and before teaching briefly in High School, a year of study abroad (USA) changed his life as he started to explore a different culture than his own and ended up writing his Ph. D (University of Paris-Sorbonne) on the new Asian immigrants in North America, living and experiencing both the Far West (Vancouver) and the Far East (Hong Kong). Therefore, analyzing different ways of life and of thinking through complete immersion has became a real passion for him and, after having recently discovered South America, he is willing to keep on interacting with the Other to fully understand the world on a global and multicultural level.
