Thinking Spaces Improvisation Reading Group & Speaker Series Presents: Ellen Waterman

February 10, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Improvisation and the Audibility of Difference: Safa, Canadian Multiculturalism, and the Politics of Recognition”

Friday, February 10th
University of Guelph

Join us for an afternoon discussing improvisation and multiculturalism with Ellen Waterman. Ellen Waterman is a flutist and professor of ethnomusicology at the School of Music at Memorial University in Newfoundland. In her new article “Improvisation and the Audibility of Difference,” Waterman analyzes intercultural encounters in musical improvisation in order to explore questions of selfhood and subjectivity in the context of the politically charged discourse on Canada’s official policy of multiculturalism– a policy that is designed to simultaneously celebrate and contain difference.

Rozanski Hall, ROZH 106, University of Guelph
Free & Open to the Public
