Dr. Line Grenier is Associate Professor at the Département de communication at Université de Montréal in Montréal, Québec (Canada).  Director of the research group Popular Culture, Knowledge and Critique (CPCC), she teaches predominantly in the areas of research methodology, social discourse, memory and media, and popular culture. A popular music studies scholar, her work on the history and politics of “chanson,” local music industries, broadcasting and cultural policies related to French-language vocal music, rites and processes of popularization and valorization in Québec, as well as the Céline Dion phenomenon and the figures of fame and celebrity it embodies, has been published in several journals, including Popular Music, Cultural Studies, Recherches féministes, Ethnomusicology, Recherches sociographiques, and Musicultures. Her current research focuses on the business and politics of live music, especially on the role of small venues in Montreal, and the regimes of circulation of music. Her most recent project deals with ageing musics and musicians in Québec. It involves a conjectural analysis of the normativities of public discourse on “active” and “successful ageing,” and a multi-site ethnography of a music contest for seniors called Étoile des aînés/Senior Stars.
