Listening Across Disciplines
In this nineteenth broadcast in the series we hear from Joanna Norman, Senior Curator at V&A, and Lead Curator for the Scottish Design Galleries at V&A Museum of Design Dundee, who will be talking about listening in the context of the V&A. In particular she will be discussing the museum’s musical instrument collection addressing the paradox of its mute display. Her presentation asks how curators can try to get around the silence of the artefact?
A weekly radio programme that presents methods of listening as they are practised by astrophysicists, urbanists, architects, audiologists, artists, anthropologists, writers, neurologists, etc. Each week a different professional, academic, or researcher will introduce their listening methods, play examples of their work, and discuss how they analyse and use what they hear.
The weekly broadcasts are an edited version of discussions that are taking place as part of an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded network project of the same name that aims to explore the use of listening across various disciplines in order to advance it as a reliable and legitimate method of investigation and communication in which culture and science can collide to generate new knowledge and innovative modes of knowledge production.
