As part of her ongoing research project on English-language theatre in the French-speaking region of Québec, Erin Hurley (McGill University) will produce in February 2020 a series of staged-readings of plays, written between 1930 and 1980 by Quebec authors.

Virginia Magnat (The University of British Columbia) announces her newly published book: The Performative Power of Vocality (Routledge 2020). Addressed to qualitative researchers, artist-scholars, and activists committed to decolonization, cultural revitalization, and social justice, this book opens up new avenues of understanding across Indigenous and Western philosophy, performance studies, musicology, ethnomusicology, sound and voice studies, anthropology, sociology, phenomenology, cognitive science, physics, ecology, and biomedicine. Drawing from her performance training, research collaborations, and commitment to cultural diversity, Magnat explores vocality as a vital source of embodied knowledge, creativity, and well-being grounded in process, practice, and place, as well as a form of social and political agency.

Yana Meerzon (University of Ottawa) announces two recent publications on the theme of Multilingual Performance and Migration: a special section, "ESSAYS," of the journal Critical Stages/Scènes critiques (n. 20, 2019) and the book, Dramaturgy of Migration: Staging Multilingual Encounters in Contemporary Theatre, Routledge 2019.
