This moderated conversation will look at the unique potential music holds to bring people together behind a common cause, as it considers the various roles that the medium has played in revolutionary struggle and emerging social movements. By considering this issue from various perspectives and drawing on examples of engaged music, the goal of this conversation will be to provide a better understanding of the plural nature of music and the range of functions that the medium has served, and continues to serve, in furthering social change. Guests: Dr. Jonathan Sterne (Art History and Communication Studies, McGill University), Dr. Bronwen Low (Integrated Studies in Education, McGill University), Prof. Eric Lewis (Improvisation, Community and Social Practice, McGill University). Moderated by Claire Abraham. Although this is a free event, space is limited and pre-registration is recommended.
