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.

isaScience 2021 focuses on critical perspectives on heroic imaginations, cultic actions and the formation and maintenance of canons. Across musical styles and cultural spheres, heroes, cults and canons contribute to the creation of normative and exclusionary and even violent settings, dictating what ears and eyes should deem adequate and valuable. Likewise, heroisation, cultification and canonisation define what remains unheard, unseen and regarded as unworthy.
With special emphasis on postcolonial, feminist, queer, and class-related analyses, the still-current questions from last year – plus our own situation as researchers in the midst of a pandemic that is still ongoing – are to be critically dealt with and discussed. isaScience 2021’s academic leading team is looking forward to animated interdisciplinary exchange and critical contributions to our discussions!
