Bates, Vincent C. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
The main purpose of this essay is to critically analyze why social class receives relatively little attention in American social justice scholarship in music education.

Giroux, Henry A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Henry Giroux begins this discussion by observing that he thinks there is a lot to be learned about what happens to higher education when authoritarians win elections and a liberal democracy morphs into something else. Giroux believes that under the regime of Donald Trump, higher education is under siege, and its stated purpose to produce the…

Matias Recharte – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Music, considered as a field of discourse, has important implications for how educators think and act within their classrooms. Based on the work of Ruben Gaztambide-Fernandez, Murray R. Schafer, and feminist music education scholars, this paper aims to delineate these implications and to propose "sound education" as an alternative.…

Hess, Juliet; Talbot, Brent C. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
In 1963--a racially-charged time in the United States--James Baldwin delivered "A Talk to Teachers," urging educators to engage youth in difficult conversations about current events. We concur with Giroux (2011, 2019) that political forces influence our educational spaces and that classrooms should not be viewed as apolitical, but…

In this essay, I critique and critically reflect upon two questions derived from Action Ideal VIII of the MayDay Group: "We commit to understanding the wide range of possibilities and the limitations that technology and media offer music and music learning." Before we can address the "how," it is necessary to know the…

Kenya's children experience two forms of technology and media as they access and interact with information: the indigenous technology and media that are derived from their cultural surrounding and modern electronic technology and media that are readily available thanks to social platforms and media of mass communication. The term…

Louth, Paul – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2018
This essay addresses behaviorism in music education and its possible connections to a kind of technicist thinking, first described by Herbert Marcuse, that ritualizes concepts and reduces them to a series of brute operations or behaviors. Labeled "technological rationalization" by early critical theorists, the mindset has potentially…

Boeskov, Kim – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2018
Critical scholars have noted a tendency in the field of music education toward idealization of the socially transformative power of music and a disregard of the counterproductive or ambiguous outcomes of social music making. In this article, I discuss some of the dominant conceptualizations addressing music as a means of social transformation, and…

Hess, Juliet – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2018
Given the hierarchies, limitations, and power embedded in institutions such as schools, this paper examines whether an activist music education that occurs inside of school can be truly revolutionary. I draw upon Deleuze and Guattari's (2005/1987) treatise on "Nomadology and the War Machine" as a conceptual framework for this…
