About Marita Rhedin

Research

My doctoral thesis from 2011, Singing story-tellers: the singing of visa on the public stage from 1900 to 1970, deals with the literary visa and its representatives on the stage. Based on recordings, the genre is followed from the lute singers and peasant comedians of the early 20th century, through the revival of the visa in the 1930s and 1940s, to the visa wave in the 1960s with the likes of Fred Åkerström and Cornelis Vreeswijk. The focus is performance practice, i.e. the identification of characteristic features for the performance of the visa on the public stage, and how this has changed over time.

Influenced by ethnomusicological thinking, and trained as a singer and vocal teacher, also my present research projects concern various techniques, functions and meanings of singing.

Teaching

At the Department of Cultural Sciences I teach Musicology, Scandinavian Studies, the Bachelor’s programme Kultur, as well as in the Teacher Education Programme. I also have responsibility for several modules on the mentioned courses.

External relations and activities

From 2006 to 2014 representatives from the University of Gothenburg, Folkuniversitetet, and Svenska visakademin together arranged a series of seminars around the life and works of Evert Taube. The seminars gathered a number of prominent artists and researchers and resulted, among other things, in an anthology and several well-attended public concerts with interspersed lectures. As an extension of this project, the same partners are now collaborating around a project on Swedish songbooks, with the purpose of examining the canonization of the repertoire, and highlight lesser known songs and auteurs.

I am a trained vocal coach, with studies from the Ingesund Folk High School's music programme, Malmö Academy of Music and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, and run parallel freelance activities as a singer.
