Abstract [en]

The presentation will enlighten and discuss the need and challenges of border-crossing research, when complex phenomena that include art, technology and Bildung are to be investigated. A developing project Evolving Bildung in the nexus of streaming services, art and users - Spotify as a case will function as a starting-point for a reasoning regarding what constitutes border-crossing research, and what dilemmas as well as new meeting points that appear in a process where border crossing is at stake. Material to make an analysis possible was gathered during a lunch-to-lunch symposium where scholars from music education, musicology, psychology, media and communication, English literature, management, Big-data, and sound engineering met and discussed collaboration in relation to the mentioned project. The material was analyzed from a sociological phenomenological perspective. The result of the analysis shows the challenges with, and importance of, meetings in the common world to make border-crossing research possible, at the same time as a belonging to a specific scientific world defines a researcher. Concepts, methods, attitudes, and theories have to, at least to some extent, be redefined based upon new common agreements. Such a process demands researchers to occasionally leave their own “truths” and be open and curios in the common world.
