Introducing ourselves

Greetings from the PhD Candidates

The sdp doctoral team has been active for over a month already! In early November we moved into our office in Lothringerstraße 18, where you will find us in the future. However, to curb the spread of the virus, we will be working from home for a while and will be happy to get in touch with you via email (our personal contact information is available here).

We are looking forward to connecting with researchers, students, and musicians from the mdw and beyond. To get started, we are happy to announce the first of our programme’s activities to take place: the “Inter-relations: sdp meet up”, a series of online conversations with researchers from the University of Music and Performing Arts of Vienna about their works in progress. We are excited to have Sarah Chaker from the Department of Music Sociology as our guest for the first session, on December 9th, at 4pm. If you are interested to join, please send an e-mail to to receive the Zoom link and be informed about the next sessions.

We hereby seize the opportunity to officially and warmly welcome to the programme another colleague, Peter Lell, who joined us last week. If you want to learn more about his and the other team members’ projects, have a look here.

Our website will be regularly updated with information about the “inter-relations: sdp meet up” series and further activities – so stay tuned!

Angelica, Isabel, Juan, Peter, Sophie, and Tianyu
