May 17-21, Laval University

The 2022-2023 academic year marks the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Music at Laval University. In recognition of this occasion, the Faculty is organizing the Dialogues Conference, to be held in hybrid format from May 17-21 2023 at Laval University. As host and organizer, the Faculty of Music of Laval University will welcome the principal Canadian societies of music research, teaching, and creation: CAML, IASPM-Canada, MusCan, OICRM-ULaval, RCSBS, SQRM, and one of its international partners, JIRPP.

Under the theme of Dialogues, the 2023 Conference celebrates a century of dialogues sparked by the Faculty of Music and invites participants to reflect together on the next century of musical research, teaching, and creation. At the core of these reflections, the Conference promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion in a dialogue that is interdisciplinary, interuniversity, transregional, cross-media, and transcultural.

In order to gather, in person or virtually, the members of the eight participating associations, many paper sessions, workshops, contests, and audiovisual projections will occur in parallel each day, presenting a broad range of perspectives to the academic community and the general public for a lively dialogue.
