Imagining Possibilities in a Global World: Music, Learning and Rapid Change
Allsup, Randall Everett
Music Education Research, v6 n2 p179-190 Jul 2004
This essay examines the shift toward a globally interdependent world, starting with the ontological premise that thinking, identity and action are subsumed by culture. The author explores the view that globalism, with its break from modernist constraints, may enable liberation. The post-Soviet borderless economy implies a shift of rule and a new sovereignty. The current US educational system does not reflect the rapid pace of global change. The author discusses the role of music educators as artists facilitating cultural and social transitions in the post-September 11, 2001, climate.
