On Wednesday 19 February many of the CCC research group attended PhD candidate Felicity Burbridge Rinde’s midway evaluation of her project on the use of music with newly arrived minority language pupils in Norwegian primary schools. The evaluation committee, Line Hilt from the University of Bergen and Eva Sæther from the University of Malmø, asked many exciting questions and gave a lot of constructive feedback. Rinde sums up:
This has been an important milepost on the horizon for a while, and it was an extremely positive experience to present my project, including glimpses from the ongoing ethnographic fieldwork, discuss methodology, and be challenged on certain points in the texts to the evaluation committee.
The afternoon was rounded off with a well-deserved dinner with research group colleagues in Bergen.

also be very challenging and problematic from the perspectives of teachers and
