Colloquium: ‘Ethical Responsiveness: listening and reading across difference’

Friday 18 March, University of Wollongong

Convened by Dr Tanja Dreher (ARC Future Fellow)

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)

Colloquium Program Ethical Responsiveness

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 (Asian Australian Democracy Caucus)
