The CIREC aims to provide a unifying framework for individual and collective initiatives which are multiplying in the field of research-creation in the social sciences. It works to widely disseminate this type of research and thus to create bridges between science, culture and society. 

Conceived as a collective space conducive to exchanges (je crois que ce n’est pas le mot mais je trouve pas mieux) dialogue?, debates and the production of common knowledge, the CIREC intends to develop through the reception je crois vraiment que c’est ça and organization of conferences, seminars, workshops, exhibitions and film screenings.

The Focus (Alternative Writing Fair in the Social Sciences) is hosting the Cirec research-creation workshop this year. This workshop offers researchers and doctoral students the opportunity to present an ongoing project to discuss with members of Cirec, researchers who practice research-creation.

The proposed projects should draw on both the resources of the social sciences and artistic practices in order to question the social world through the prism of a cross-disciplinary approach in art and social sciences.

Magali Uhl, co-curator of the exhibition 


The UQAM Design Center presents the exhibition TOTAL SCREEN which welcomes for the first time in Canada the photographs of the philosopher Jean Baudrillard, placed in dialogue with the works of Adam Basanta, Charlie Doyon, Clint Enns, Mishka Henner & Vaseem Bhatti, Penelope Umbrico and Xuan Ye. The omnipresence of screens in our societies and our daily lives is questioned in order to reveal the topicality and the critical, even subversive, potential of the philosopher's thought, used and diverted by several generations of artists and designers of the international scene.
