The research at Malmö Academy of Music is published in the three series – 'Perspective in Music and Music Education', 'Doctoral Studies and Research in Fina and Performing Arts' and 'Studies in Music and Music Education'.
Perspectives in Music and Music Education
The Perspectives in Music and Music Education series includes publications by senior researchers and doctoral students that do not fall into the category of doctoral dissertations. This means that the range of content is wide and includes historical, theoretical and methodological perspectives. For example, Håkan Lundström's solid compilation of the History of the Swedish Academy of Music, published on the occasion of the centenary in 2007, and Liora Bresler's 'Beyond methods: lessons from the arts to qualitative research, reflect the various authors' methodological innovations in music education'. David Johnson's 'Confluence: perspectives from an intercultural music exchange in Nepal' is the result of a project by senior researchers and doctoral students in an earthquake-affected village with socially engaged musicians. Feel free to explore further.
Doctoral Studies and Research in Fine and Performing Arts
The Doctoral Studies and Research in Fine and Performing Arts series brings together theses and research from the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University; Malmö Academy of Music, Malmö Theatre Academy and Malmö Art Academy. The first theses in artistic research in music were Stefan Östersjö's 'Shut up 'n' play!: negotiating the musical work' and Henrik Frisk's 'Improvisation, computers and interaction. Rethinking human-computer interaction through music', both published in 2008. Welcome to delve into fifteen years of artistic research.
Studies in Music and Music Education
All publications in music education are published in the series Studies in Music and Music Education. Music education as a research subject started at Malmö Academy of Music in 1996, and the first doctoral student was Gunnar Heiling with the thesis 'Play nicely and have fun: community, cohesion and musical development in an amateur orchestra'. The dissertations include studies on choirs and choral singing, the scope of music teachers, singing in schools, the democratisation of music education, cultural diversity and much, much more. Most of it is available online.
