About Olle Stenbäck
The subject of my PhD thesis is, in short, music and meaning in postmodern urban space from a listener’s perspective. Focal themes are listener practices, the city as place/space, aspects of health and well-being, the theming of cities, homogenization, music and marketing, etc. Theoretical inspiration is mainly taken from ANT (actor-network theory) and practice theory, but throughout from a phenomenological point of view. The central city area of Gothenburg sets the scene.
