Listening Across Disciplines
In this seventeenth broadcast we hear from Dr. James Wilkes poet, writer and Senior Researcher in the Department of Geography, University of Durham; Associate Director of Hubbub a collective of researchers and artists exploring rest and its opposites – including noise, work and mindwandering. James works with the textures and rhythms of spoken and heard language and will be talking about imagining into being a distant world by listening to 15th Century Chansons..
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. This installment will be broadcast at the earlier time of 2.15pm (and repeated as usual on Monday at 11am):
Full documentation and archives of the radio shows will also be made available on the LxD website.
