This seminar will explore the importance of 'listening' in the context of digital culture and user generated content. From increased spectrum availability to the explosion of social media, from the international boom in digital storytelling to the growth of citizen journalism, digital technologies have opened up unprecedented possibilities for marginalised communities to speak up, share stories and find a voice. Yet research increasingly suggests that greater capacity for media production does not always guarantee that diverse voices will actually be heard.

Engaging with an emerging interest in 'listening' in political theory, media and cultural studies, this paper investigates listening as the crucial challenge for democratic media in the digital age. The seminar also suggests listening strategies for media justice as the problems of media scarcity are transformed by the challenges of abundance.
