William Southerland – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
LGBTQIA+ choruses in the United States play an important role in the development of queer movement culture by providing safe spaces other than bars and clubs, by emotionally supporting queer people through extended political struggles and the AIDS crisis, and by presenting public counternarratives to anti-gay propaganda. Jon Sims, a music teacher…

Jessica McKiernan; Colleen McNickle – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
Dialogue surrounding gender and identity in choral ensembles is multi-faceted and complex. Although many gendered ensembles can serve as a safe space for singers, they can essentialize the experience of gender and ignore the intersectional nature of identity, thus marginalizing trans, gender-expansive, and BIPOC singers. In this paper, we…

Jody Stark – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
In this article, I explore several complicating factors that impact (White) music teachers as they work towards decolonizing their teaching practices. Created by the discursive structures of settler colonialism, these factors include the discourse of an additive multiculturalism, both in society and in the field of music education, the tendency to…

Juliet Hess – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
The push toward socially just music education begs the question of whether activist music teaching may foster a new autocracy. In this paper, I consider how Deleuzian lines of flight and the related concepts of nomadism, territorialization, deterritorialization, and reterritorialization trouble or extend activist music education. I further explore…

André de Quadros – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
Anchored in the work of Fanon (1952), Mbembe (2019), and Spivak (1988), I take an autoethnographic journey that traces colonization and the subtle forces of coercion that exist in the academy and society, particularly in the US. I draw on Holland et al. (1998) to position myself in a figured world, a unique constellatory network of histories,…

Hector Vazquez-Cordoba – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
The main purpose of this article is to affirm that music educators have agency to foster collaborations with local culture bearers, particularly in contexts where a strong influence of music with Indigenous roots exists. This can be done in Mexico, despite the lack of Indigenous perspectives in the nation's national curriculum. Music educators…

Aaron Lohmeyer – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
Teaching for musical meaning can be a multifaceted topic, since a universally accepted definition of musical meaning is elusive; yet musical meaning remains at the heart of music literacy. Music literacy is equally complex, as changes in technology constantly reorganize how musical sounds are produced, recorded, and transmitted. Today, musical…

Noah Karvelis – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
In this article, I explore how popular music became incorporated into the field of music education in the 21st-century United States. In doing so, I suspend notions of popular music education as simply inclusive or able to produce creative people. Instead, I question how inclusion becomes constructed and defined historically in relation to ideas…

Tuulikki Laes – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
In this article, I address the contemporary discussion of later-life courses in music education research and how it might perpetuate the discrimination and stereotyping of older adults. Drawing from the sociology of aging, I aim to show that one possible way to tackle the ageist assumptions in music education is to reflect on rethinking,…

Erika J. Knapp; Whitney Mayo – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
The college admissions process (application, audition, acceptance) serves as a crucial milestone for many aspiring music educators. It also functions as a barrier to accessing the profession for historically marginalized students. In this article, we employ anti-racism as a lens to critically examine the admissions process as it exists in many…

Lorenzo Sánchez-Gatt – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
I argue that an analysis of antiblack racism in music education discourse is crucial in identifying and addressing potential for harm in the music classroom. I contend that Black children are particularly, and regularly, subjected to poor stereotypical depictions of their identity in digital media. Furthermore, I contend that this digital…

Emmett James O'Leary – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2023
In this paper, I critically examine platformized music education on YouTube. I suggest YouTube's platform mechanisms influence music teaching and learning on the platform. The influence is present throughout the production, distribution, and monetization structures that YouTube-based music educators experience. I discuss how creators make videos…
