The Pedagogy of Listening/ Listening to people in the age of investment thinking

Presented by Dr Linje Manyozo, RMIT

Hosted in collaboration of UQ's the School of Communication and Arts and the Centre of Communication for Social Change.

Date: Friday 3 May, 2019
Time: 3:00pm-4:00pm
Location: Digital Learning Space (Room 224, Level 2), Joyce Ackroyd Building (#37) 

Abstract:

The seminar will explore the concept of listening in relation to the Marxist notion of ‘doing history from below’. The discussion will draw on Dr Manyozo’s latest book, Communicating Development with Communities (Routledge, 2017), which explores the implication of power in the communicative act of listening. Listening is being conceived as a political, moral and historical process of recognizing, validating and celebrating other people’s perspectives and experiences. Whilst participatory development scholarship emphasizes the citizen-led production of citizen’s voices and their incorporation into orthodox policy formulation and implementation, there is still widespread footnoting of listening as a communicative act in its own right. The deliberation will build on notions of listening propounded by the historical praxis of Thompson (1963) and Freire (1996), in which listening is touted as a historical experiment of tolerance.
