Conference: Heroes, Canons, Cults. Critical Inquiries – in Musical Styles and Cultural Spheres, 11.-15.08.2021, Reichenau an der Rax and virtual space

isaScience 2021; Karoline Feyertag, Dagmar Abfalter, Marko Kölbl, Rosa Reitsamer, and Fritz Trümpi (Web)
Venue: Reichenau an der Rax and virtual space
Time: 11.-15.08.2021
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.
