Ordinary Social Listening in a Psychotechnological Age

June 6, 2018 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Law School Crown Building, Room 320F

Please join us for a talk by Prof. Naomi Waltham-Smith from the University of Pennsylvania. 

Prof. Waltham-Smith’s talk will cover her work on “the micropolitics of all-too-ordinary listening,” and develop a critical theory arguing for the harnessing and redirection of ordinary social listening based on a close examination of activism in diverse forms: from the sound-art collective Ultra-red, hip-hop culture, to the way demonstrations and riots have engaged new media as a mode of civic participation. 

Following the talk, stay for an informal Q&A led by Digital Civil Society Lab Postdoctoral Fellow Jessica Feldman.   

Wine and light refreshments provided. Please RSVP to Heather Robinson,
