'Music is the Body' 2016 Interdisciplinary Dialogues Series

Music in the Body poster

The Concordia Humanities Doctoral Program and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture are proud to announce the interdisciplinary panel Music is the Body, aimed at exploring the materiality of sound and music through innovative research and creation projects.

This year, our panel is composed of PhD candidates from Humanities and from the Individualized program (INDI), who will join their expertise in the fields of music, philosophy, media, and digital sound studies to showcase their ongoing research and research-creation projects, as well as to establish a fruitful dialogue among creators and researchers. The panel has been organized by Aurelio Meza (Ph.D. in Humanities) and will be moderated by Ricardo Dal Farra (Music Department, ex-director of Hexagram).
