Engaging with Archives: Mobilizing Quebec’s Musical Past for Today
Supervisor: Prof. Laura Risk
Project Description: This project seeks student RAs with strong French-language skills and an interest in music and community-engaged research. We will work on two interrelated projects about traditional music in Quebec: 1) mobilization of a large collection of field recordings from the 1960s and 70s in anticipation of their future use in community music and heritage activities; and 2) a historical study of the place of traditional music in the construction of national identity in Quebec in the early/mid-twentieth century. Student RAs will have opportunities to collaborate with community partners such as museums and non-profit arts organizations and to work with researchers from several Quebec universities.
Data and digital scholarship support is available through the University of Toronto Scarborough Library. If you have questions related to research data or digital research methods, contact Paulina Rousseau and she can liaise with the library's Digital Scholarship Unit.
There is a variety of Digital Scholarship tools that can help you to integrate data and visualize it using GIS tools, and there is much training material available. This will be further discussed throughout the duration of the project.
