White, Bob


Bob White is Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Montreal. His early research explores the relationship between popular culture and politics. His book Rumba Rules : The Politics of Dance Music in Mobutu's Zaire (Duke University Press, 2008) was the recipient of the Anthony Leeds Prize (2009) and the Joel Gregory Prize (2010). He has also done research on globalization, audiences and cultural policy. His current research is focused on the dynamics of intercultural communication in various contexts (intercultural collaboration, intercultural cities, intercultural policy frameworks). As the director of the Laboratory for Research on Intercultural Relations (LABRRI), his most recent project involves an in-depth ethnographic study of intercultural dynamics and policies in Montreal, Québec. Together with Lomomba Emongo he recently published L'interculturel au Québec : rencontres historiques et enjeux politiques (PUM, 2014) and he is currently working on an edited volume about intercultural policy frameworks for cities in collaboration with the Council of Europe.
