Announcement of six 4-year PhD positions in the Structured Doctoral Programme “Music Matters. Materiality, Knowings and Practices” at mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
At mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the newly established Structured Doctoral Programme Music Matters. Materiality, Knowings and Practices in Performing Arts at the Office of the Dean of Research Programmes offers six 4-year fully-funded PhD positions (30h/ per week).
The Structured Doctoral Programme Music Matters starts on October 1st 2020 and aims to develop a “contemporary diagnosis of musical matters” and their social implications with special focus on materiality, knowings or practices in performing arts. In order to outline and contextualize this inherently interdisciplinary field of research theoretically, empirically and/or historically, we refer to the concept of Late Modernity. The programme welcomes dissertation projects which offer a critical investigation of aspects of materiality, knowings or practices related to complex cultural phenomena in music and performing arts.
