Listening Across Disciplines
In this eighteenth broadcast we hear from Marcel Cobussen, Professor of Auditory Culture at Leiden University, The Netherlands, and editor of the Journal of Sonic Studies, who will be considering music from its silence and its space and debate the need for dialogue and an ethics of listening.
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.
Listen on Resonance FM, Wednesdays at 3pm (or Monday at 11am):
Full documentation and archives of the radio shows will also be made available on the LxD website.
