Two events on the politics of listening are coming up at the University of Wollongong:

Colloquium: 'Ethical Responsiveness: listening and reading across difference'

Friday 18 March

University of Wollongong

Sponsored by the Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts in conjunction with Future Fellowship project 'Listening In' (FT140100515), and a UoW Visiting International Scholar Award (Prof Anshuman Mondal, Brunel)

This colloquium explores the productive possibilities of moving beyond the politics of voice or representation to explore listening and reading across difference in research and in advocacy work. To develop the emerging scholarship on political listening and reading, we ask what can be learned from critical scholarship on negotiating difference, alter politics, ally and solidarity work, or decolonisating strategies? Presenters will also engage recent work on rethinking recognition and the limits of liberal free speech theory. The colloquium brings together researchers from a range of disciplines and approaches to generate new conversations on the ethical possibilities and pitfalls of listening and reading.

Speakers: Anshuman Mondal (Brunel), Tanja Dreher (UoW), Shakira Hussein (Melbourne), Sukhmani Khorana (UoW), Clare Land (Victoria University), Lisa Slater (UoW), Anna Szorenyi (Adelaide), Cate Thill (Notre Dame), Lisa Waller (Deakin), Allison Weir (ACU), Shinen Wong (Adian Australian Democracy Caucus)

'Political listening and feminist interventions'

Tuesday 19 April

University of Wollongong

Supported by the Feminist Research Network

Morning works in progress roundtable: Listening as a feminist intervention

The roundtable traces the diverse feminist antecedents and influences for an emerging interest in 'listening' in media studies and political theory.

Speakers: Cate Thill (Notre Dame), Justine Lloyd (Macquarie), Tanja Dreher (UoW), Nicole Matthews (Macquarie)

Afternoon workshop: 'Listening as a feminist intervention in teaching'

The workshop aims to generate discussion and practical strategies for working with 'listening' as a feminist-inspired practice in our teaching. Speakers will introduce their experiences with various 'listening' exercises in university teaching, in order to stimulate discussion of these and other possibilities for listening interventions.

Speakers: Elaine Laforteza (Macquarie), Nisha Thapliyal (Newcastle), Denise Buiten (Notre Dame, TBC), Colleen McGloin (UoW), Andrew Whelan (UoW)
