Personal profile

Biography

Dr Clare Hall is Lecturer in Performing Arts and Leader of the Arts-Creativity-Education research group in the Faculty of Education. Her research in the sociology of the arts, with a focus on music and dance across cultures, brings together over 25 years of experience as a musician, performer, and educator. Her interdisciplinary scholarship advocates for social justice by promoting greater inclusion and diversity in the arts across the lifespan. Her qualitative research draws on Bourdieu, narrative methodology and arts-based methods to examine the intersections of gender, class, ethnicity, race and age in education and the arts. 

In 2013 her sociological study 'Voices of distinction: Choirboys' narratives of music, masculinity and the middle-class' received the Award for Doctoral Excellence in Education from the Australian Association for Research in Education for its contribution to educational research by an early career researcher. This work is the subject of her monograph Masculinity, Class & Music Education (Palgrave, 2018). Clare is current Vice-Chair of the International Symposium on the Sociology of Music Education.

Clare's education work with pre-service teachers promotes transdisciplinary teaching and learning through the temporal arts and embodied ways of knowing across the curriculum. She has taught music and movement in schools from Kinder-Year 12, including instrumental and choral education, specialising in the primary and early years.
