Antes de pasar página: conectando los mundos paralelos de El Sistema y la investigación crítica.

Before you turn the page: Connecting the parallel worlds of El Sistema and critical research.

Geoff Baker

Resumen


Este artículo es una compilación de reflexiones con respecto a las investigaciones sobre El Sistema y a la recepción del primer (y hasta la fecha único) libro académico sobre este programa. Resalta la incertidumbre en el ámbito internacional de El Sistema frente a la información que está saliendo sobre el programa en Venezuela, y propone varios argumentos para tomar esa información en serio y abrir un debate abierto y honesto sobre las fallas de El Sistema y las posiciones que deberían tomar aquellos que han sido inspirados por el programa, en vez de seguir con un elogio ciego o sencillamente pasar página. La segunda parte del artículo reflexiona sobre el futuro de la investigación académica sobre El Sistema, centrándose en las diferencias entre los estudios cualitativos y cuantitativos, y entre las investigaciones académicas y las evaluaciones realizadas por consultoras. Termina con unas reflexiones sobre la posibilidad de un acercamiento entre los mundos paralelos de El Sistema y la investigación crítica.



This article consists of a series of reflections on research on El Sistema and the reception of the first (and to date only) academic book on the program. It underlines the uncertainty of the international Sistema sphere in the face of the information that is emerging about the Venezuelan program, and proposes various reasons for taking that information seriously and beginning an open and honest debate about El Sistema’s problems and the positions that those who have been inspired by the program might take with regard to them, rather than continuing with blind eulogy or turning the page. The second part of the article considers the future of academic research on El Sistema, focusing on the differences between qualitative and quantitative studies, and between academic research and consultancy evaluations. It concludes with some reflections on the possibilities for closing the gap between the parallel worlds of El Sistema and critical research.
