1. Johnston, Mindy Kay. Music and Conflict Resolution: Exploring the Utilization of Music in Community Engagement.

Degree: MS(M.S.) in Conflict Resolution, Conflict Resolution, 2010, Portland State University

This study is based on interviews conducted with twenty-two musician-activists in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States in 2009 to explore perspectives about the role of music in community engagement with the aim of considering how music might be used in the field of conflict resolution. The study followed the qualitative approach of constructivist grounded theory as designed by Charmaz (2000, 2002). Two themes, "Music for Self," and "Music for Society" emerged from interviews and comprise the internal and external meanings of music to the research informants. The results of the study indicate that the relationships people have with music make it a potentially powerful tool in conflict situations within the realms of both conflict resolution and conflict transformation. More extensive research exploring these benefits is recommended. Advisors/Committee Members: Robert Gould.
