The academic year 2022-2023 marks the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Music at Université Laval. For the occasion, the faculty is organizing the Dialogues Conference, which will be held from May 17 to 21, 2023 at Université Laval, located in Quebec City. The conference, hybrid format, will host the principal Canadian research societies in music, teaching and music creation, as well as an international partner:

Focused on the theme, Dialogues, the conference invites participants to reflect together about the next century in research, teaching, music creation and composition.

While researchers, creators, students, and music practitioners are welcome to present on any aspect of their work, the conference especially welcomes presentations with a focus on three main objectives:

  1. To promote equity, diversity and inclusion, via an interdisciplinary, interuniversity, transregional, intermilieu and transcultural dialogue.
  2. To think collectively about the topics of equity, diversity and inclusion and their impact on the production, mobilization and application of new music knowledge.
  3. To contribute to the accessibility of scientific music production by creating meeting spaces for discussion and by bringing various people and domains together (research, education, artistic practice, creation and composition, general public).

In preparation for the conference, which will take place in-person and online, we invite the members of the associations to present scientific communications, panels, poster presentations, workshops, roundtables, compositions, lecture-recitals or mini-concerts to the scientific committee. The associations can also propose a more specific call for communications. The Dialogues Conference will oversee the organization of many different plenary activities including the keynote conference, roundtables and musical events.
