From the “Politics of Listening” event description:

What does it mean to listen politically? What are the audible characteristics of what we hear? Who controls what we listen to or how we listen? Different audio formats, soundscapes, and the voice itself can become, or are inherently, politicized. How we listen can shape our understanding of socio-political histories, spark desires for activism and alternatively, even create biases and misinformation. We must therefore understand our agency and position in this process and consider how listening can impact democracy.
