Örebro University, School of Music, Theatre and Art.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-3758-7541
2007 (English)In: Research Studies in Music Education, ISSN 1321-103X, E-ISSN 1834-5530, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 13-28Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article discusses the need for theoretical analysis in narrative music education research. Stories we hear are not simply accounts of individual experiences. They are also part of cultural narratives, socially and historically located. For the purpose of increased and in-depth understanding in narrative studies there must be an analysis of how a person's life relates to phenomena such as time, culture, society and gender. In order to bring to light unconscious pre-understandings, hidden conventions and ideologies it is necessary to problematize the text on different levels of abstraction.

One way of enriching narrative work is through the incorporation of hermeneutics.i Hermeneutics offers dialogue-based interpretations of meaningful phenomena in the life world. If we understand narrative as a form of knowledge, both narrative and hermeneutics refer to the same fundamental characteristics of our individual and social existence: historicity and interaction, or dialogue, between experiences.
