The Conditions for Establishment of an Ideological Dilemma: Antagonistic Discourses and Over-Determined Identity in School Music Teaching
Ericsson, Claes; Lindgren, Monica
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v32 n5 p713-728 2011
This article presents an analysis of video documentation of music teaching in Swedish schools. The article is based on a larger research project, funded by The Swedish Research Council, the purpose of which has been to study how market aesthetics and students' everyday culture are applied to the teaching of music. The introduction presents a background for the study's focus on music teaching in relation to issues of student influence. Next, the theoretical and methodological starting points are presented. With discourse psychological microanalysis as a point of departure, the ideological dilemma that has emerged in the analysis of the videos is then identified and discussed. In addition, the different types of subject positions contained in the studied discursive practice are problematized. The article concludes with a discussion of a number of factors that contribute to the establishment of ideological dilemmas in school practitioners of music education. (Contains 1 note.)
