Call for Papers: Arts, Societies and Knowledge Sharing
Université du Québec à Montréal
May 15 – 17, 2019
UQAM’s Faculty of Arts, in partnership with the Faculty of Educational Sciences, is organizing the scientific conference Arts, Societies and Knowledge Sharing as part of the Rioux Report’s 50 years Celebrations. We invite you to send your proposals for papers, round tables or workshops, relating to one of the four sessions suggested by the conference’s scientific committee. Both individual and collective submissions are accepted.
In 1969, the Rioux Report called for a major reorganization of artistic training’s administrative structures, and the elaboration of a cultural policy guaranteeing everyone access to the arts. Going beyond the simple framework of pragmatic analysis, it draws its conclusions from an in-depth reflection on the role that art, culture and education will have to play in the post-industrial society that is coming up at the time. The Arts, Society and Knowledge Sharing conference will bring together researchers from diverse backgrounds interested in the relationships between art, culture, education and the sharing of artistic knowledge in contemporary societies. The communication proposals will be part of a critical rereading of the Rioux Report or an update of its issues, with regard to one of the following sessions:
Proposals for papers (250 words) must be sent to the scientific committee at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 1st, 2018. They must also include the following information: a title (maximum 180 characters, including spaces), the author’s name, contact information, biographical note (50 words), professional status and home institution.
Individual papers should last 20 minutes; round tables, 90 minutes. In anticipation of the publication of the proceedings of the conference, the texts of the papers will have to be delivered on March 1st, 2019.
