The Sound Studies Institute at the University of Alberta hosts regular events that enrich our contribution to the educational and sonic community. We also curate and co-produce the annual Winter Roots Roundup festival.

Lecture Series

The SSI lecture series occurs twice a month on Wednesdays between 7 and 8 PM, and include diverse topics related to sound research, scholarship, and artistic explorations with sound. This year, all events will be held as live streams. Links to join the live streams will be made available before each event. Visit the lecture series page for more information about this year’s upcoming speakers.


Our workshop series give academics, artists, and community members an opportunity to learn about sound, how to edit and capture sound, field recording workshops, and other events.  Check back for updates on this year’s workshop series.
