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.

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.
