Eric Fillion joins the Department of History as a SSHRC/FRQSC Postdoctoral Fellow. He holds a PhD from Concordia University. His research explores the social and symbolic importance of music, within countercultures and in Canadian international relations. His ongoing work on cultural diplomacy and Canadian-Brazilian relations builds on the experience he has acquired as a musician. He is the founder of the Tenzier archival record label and the author of JAZZ LIBRE et la révolution québécoise: musique-action, 1967-1975. His postdoctoral research will examine international music festivals as transnational, contested sites of cultural performance during the long sixties.
