WELCOME to the International Conference
Musical Heritage: Movement and Contacts

Organized in collaboration with the Laboratoire de recherche sur les musiques du monde (LRMM), the Observatoire international de la création et des cultures musicales (OICCM) and the Canadian Society for Traditional Music (CSTM).

The transformations experienced by numerous societies have repercussions on musical traditions and heritage at various levels of their creative and interpretive process. Broadening of conceptual fields, new areas of research (tourism, musical scene), disintegration of boundaries, new media landscapes, folk revival: all these phenomena require researchers to reconsider their investigative methods and tools. The discipline of ethnomusicology, no less than the societies it encounters and studies, and, like other disciplines, finds itself at a crossroads. The increased speed at which all of these changes occur led to the idea of reassessing present-day research activities through an international conference.
