isaScience is mdw's international conference for interdisciplinary research on music and performing arts. We invite scholars, artists, and activists from various disciplinary and academic levels to join the discourse on isa's annual thematic focus. Since 2013 isaScience is part of isa, the international summer academy of mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. From 2013 to 2017 Ursula Hemetek and Cornelia Szabó-Knotik organised the conference programme.
Information about Covid-19
These are challenging times in which school closures, quarantines and a lot of uncertainty dominate our daily lives. We are constantly monitoring the situation of Covid-19 and currently remain optimistic that isaScience 2020 can take place in Austria from 12 to 16 August 2020 as planned. However, in view of the uncertainty, we are also carefully investigating and making provisions for alternative scenarios, on which we hope to be able to decide by mid-May 2020. Thank you for your patience!
In the meantime, we encourage the submission of proposals on “Heroes, Canons, Cults. Critical Inquiries”. If your commitments do not allow you to write an abstract by 31st March please send us an expression of interest by 15 April at the latest to participate to support our planning.
Take care of yourself!
