Brit Ågot Brøske: School music evolving in international collaboration – an India/Norway case study.

A case study linked to the project Education IN Music, India/Norway.

Field of study: Music Education.

The aim of this PhD project is to develop knowledge on international music teacher projects and how school music practices evolve in the project Education IN Music, India/Norway.

The PhD project is a qualitative case study, with document analysis, interviews and observation as ways of collecting data, and postcolonial theory and activity theory as theoretical frameworks. The project contributes to existing knowledge on how school music evolves and expands through international collaboration, and on how to understand this development through the concepts of contradictions, hybridity and Third Space.

International collaboration is important to NMH on a strategic level. Based on societal development and globalization, a music education project based outside Europe will be of high value.
