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. It also informs his current postdoctoral research on the postwar Canadian cultural public sphere: his two main projects examine the political art of the internationalist left and the music festival phenomenon. An affiliate of the North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative (NACDI), 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 next book, titled Distant Stage: Quebec, Brazil, and the Making of Canada’s Cultural Diplomacy, will be published by McGill-Queen’s University Press in fall 2022.
