Synergies Languages Art and Music (SLAM)

Research unit


The SLAM Laboratory, directed by Brigitte Gauthier, was created after the merger of the RASM laboratory and the SCRIPT program (Scriptwriters Creator Performers Translators) in January 2013.

The laboratory is designing research projects related to Languages, Arts and Music, hence the name: Synergies Languages Arts Music. Trainings are held in the two departments : the Arts and Music Department and the Language Department.
