The aim of this PhD project is to develop knowledge on international music teacher projects and how school music practices evolves 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 contradictions, hybridity and Third Space.
International collaboration is important to NMH on a strategic level. Based on societal development and globalization, a music educational project based outside Europe will be of high value.
