Short description

Doctoral dissertation in music education by Julia Eckerstein. Full title: "Music Education at Swedish Folk High Schools – recontextualization of pedagogic discourse at Music Programmes".

In my dissertation project, I examine how teachers and students in music programmes at Swedish Folk High Schools talk about their education. The study aim is to generate knowledge on norms and ideals that appear constitutive in various practices at music programmes, as well as to discuss these norms and ideals in relation to the educational opportunities for inclusion. A further aim is to investigate how music programmes are positioned within a music educational landscape.
