Summer Institute / Institute d’été
August 4 - August 17
Summer Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation
August 4-17, 2019
Percé, Gaspésie, Québec
During this two-week Institute, graduate and post-graduate students will workshop and network with leading scholars and practitioners in the field of Critical Studies in Improvisation, while taking advantage of the spectacular natural setting of the Gaspésie.
Situated in the heart of the Gaspésie region of Québec, the Summer Institute builds on three years of successful arts-based community projects in the area through our linked project Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie, and coincides with this year’s launch of the flagship Critical Studies in Improvisation MA and PhD programs at the University of Guelph, whose faculty (Arroyas, Fischlin, Heble, and Harley) will play an active role in designing and teaching in the Summer Institute. The Institute will include numerous opportunities for engagement both among experienced and emerging scholars and between scholars and local artists and communities.
