Ph.d-thesis (Viva coming up soon)
Torgeir Uberg Nærland's PHD-thesis is titled ”Music and the public sphere: Exploring the political significance of Norwegian hip hop music through the lens of public sphere theory”. By combining theoretical perspectives from public sphere theory and the sociology of music with empirical studies of aesthetical practice in musical genres, the aim of this project is to explore which role music play in relation to key democratic processes such as deliberation and the formation of opinion.

Torgeir is currently working on projects focusing on:
The rhetorical dimensions of musical communication and reception (initiated by the department´s rhetoric group).
Expressive culture and right wing populism in Europe.
The mediatization og welfare services in Norway (VAM)
Music and cultural citizenship among minority youth in Norway (RAM)
 
In addition Torgeir is interested in questions concerning copyright law and its consequences for cultural production.
