McGill University: LC In Words and Music

My Canadian friend Chantal Ringuet, author of the book "Les Révolutions de Leonard Cohen" is also an expert-consultant for the MAC exhibition in Montreal.

McGill University asked her to create and teach a new course this fall, on Leonard Cohen.

Dr. Chantal Ringuet

Join us for an overview of Leonard Cohen’s work and journey.

Gain an understanding of the greater cultural context of the writers of the beat generation, folk singers in the US, the turbulence of the 1960s, Québec's Quiet Revolution, modernism and postmodernism, and the Cold War; all through Leonard Cohen’s work. You will learn all about the emergence of the young McGill poet and his position as an outsider in his community.

The focus will then shift from the writer to the acclaimed singer, composer, and songwriter that he became when he turned to performance and recording. As a cultural icon, Cohen will be studied starting with the emergence of his first album, 1969's Songs of Leonard Cohen, which later became a cultural phenomenon. We will follow his resurgence after 1988's I’m Your Man and his world fame after the tours of 2008-2012.
