Organized by the Department of History. 

Please join Dr. Eric Fillion (Buchanan Postdoctoral Fellow in Canadian History, Department of History) for the launch of his new book, Distant Stage: Quebec, Brazil, and the Making of Canada’s Cultural Diplomacy (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2022) on Thursday, February 9 at 5:30 PM at the Broom Factory (305 Rideau Street, Kingston).

Distant Stage examines the neglected histories of Canada-Brazil relations and the role played by culture in Canada’s pursuit of an international identity. 

Copies of Distant Stage will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served.

Eric Fillion is adjunct professor and Buchanan postdoctoral fellow in the Department of History at Queen’s 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 playing drums with Montreal-based bands in various studios and on international stages. It also informs his current research on the postwar cultural public sphere: his two main projects examine the emergence of the music festival phenomenon in Canada and the entangled sonic histories of diasporic social movements.
