Decolonial themes within the Department of Music: choice, expectation, diversity

Project Details


This study investigates the current ‘decolonial landscape’ of Bristol's Department of Music--the social and historical context in which decolonial initiatives would be expected to take place--from the perspective of members of staff specifically. Investigation of the decolonial landscape came primarily through exploring the content and structure of the 2021/22 BA Music curriculum, analyzing relevant documents authored by members of the university, and interviewing members of staff about the nuances of the curriculum design. A thematic analysis of the interview transcripts revealed three salient themes relating to the department's decolonial landscape: choice, expectation, and diversity.

This study was funded by the Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching.
