CINEX is a film experience research program that includes intersectoral research on the effects of cinema on moviegoers, both in theatres and at home, in transportation vehicles or in schools. This program, led by the director of the CinéMédias Laboratory, Santiago Hidalgo, in collaboration with the holder of the Canada Research Chair in Cinema and Media Studies, André Gaudreault, was created in 2018 by Santiago Hidalgo as part of his doctoral research on film consciousness. The CINEX research program includes a large number of training activities and research projects that foster collaboration between the arts and sciences, as well as between schools and laboratories interested in technological innovations in the field of the cinematic experience.

 

The scientific committee of CINEX is composed of the following members of the CinéMédias Laboratory: Thomas Carrier-Lafleur, Charlotte Dronier, Joël Lehmann, Caroline Martin and Santiago Hidalgo. The expanded committee includes Sarah Lippé (Professor, Département de psychologie, Université de Montréal, Researcher at CHU Sainte-Justine, Director of the NED Laboratory) and Inga Sophia Knoth (M.Sc., Research Coordinator at the NED Laboratory).

Events

First Intersectoral Meetings on rhythm, in collaboration with the Vice-Rector’s Office, event held on May 2, 2019 at the Pavillon de la Faculté de l’aménagement of the Université de Montréal

Organized by the Innovation Laboratory, the Canada Research Chair in Cinema and Media Studies, the CinéMédias Laboratory and the CINEX research program, these first intersectoral meetings, which focus on perceived rhythm (music, film, heart) and unperceived rhythm (sleep, brain, particles), brought together some 50 professors and students from fields as varied as film, neuroscience, music, physics and education. They brought together the winners of the five 2018 Killam Prizes, André Gaudreault in humanities, Vladimir Hachinski in health sciences, Walter Herzog in engineering, Karim Jerbi in health sciences and Janet Werker in social sciences, in an unprecedented transdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration.

 

 

Second Intersectoral Meetings on rhythm. Sources of Rhythm, in collaboration with the Vice-Rector’s Office, event held on December 5 and 6, 2019 at the MIL Campus of the Université de Montréal.

Following the success of the first intersectoral meetings on the theme “Perceived Rhythm / Unperceived Rhythm”, these Second Meetings once again brought together the winners of the five 2018 Killam Prizes in order to question the origin of rhythm within the framework of a transdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration.
