About Jonathan Lilliedahl

Jonathan Lilliedahl is employed as associate senior lecturer of music education at the School of Music, Theatre and Art at Örebro University, and is an associate member of the LCT Centre for Knowledge-Building at University of Sydney. He also serves as senior lecturer of music education at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg. From 2013–2018 Lilliedahl worked as senior lecturer in didactics and 2017–2018 also as programme coordinator of teacher training programme at the School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University.

Research

Lilliedahl’s research focuses on the social, cultural and historical aspects of aesthetic knowledge practices and music education. These studies are operationalised on the basis of curriculum theory, the sociology of education, and pedagogy.

In the parallel research projects Music, Class and Academic Achievement and Music Classes in Sweden – rise and success, so-called music classes in primary school are studied. The music classes' establishment, role and function are highlighted in several substudies, which together aim to clarify why music classes exist, and in what different ways they operate in the educational landscape. This research is conducted with support from Johan & Jakob Söderberg’s Foundation, Magnus Bergvall’s Foundation and Åke Wiberg’s Foundation.

The didactically oriented research examines the implications of and meaning making in aesthetic teaching and learning practices. The research interest lies in the forming of knowledge on the type of learning that takes place in aesthetic knowledge practices as well as how approaches to aesthetic learning processes can be included in a teacher's didactic work.
