Christine Peham

Christine Peham is a senior scientist with a focus on teacher research at the interface between occupational psychology and (music) education. She is interested in structural aspects of gender equality as well as socialization factors in gender studies. Her thinking and acting is systemic-constructivist, her fascination for change management processes and organizational development complete her profile.
Christine Peham studied music and German studies at the Mozarteum University and at the Leopold-Franzens-University Innsbruck. She is doing her doctorate at the University of Music and Dance in Cologne with Anne Niessen in the field of professional music education teacher research using empirical social research methods. The focus of her work lies in the investigation of resources and strategies in pedagogical professionalization processes and of socialization factors in the choice of career, study and instruments. In her courses, she realizes numerous music education projects together with students in cooperation with the "klangspuren" and other cultural and educational institutions, reflecting on the balance of power, one's own biography and the organizational culture.
