Age of Receivership

On generous Listening, equality and gender

Moderated by Quinn Latimer and Chus Mart nez, the two day Spring

symposium will be dedicated to active listening. While hearing is a

passive act, listening is an active act of engaging with the other, with

oneself and with nature. There is a gender assumption as well that

subscribes listening and story telling to women and elderly, while

agency and production is subscribe to  the male. The symposium will

address the importance of surpassing those binary divisions, while

addressing listening as a key element in reaching equality goals, in

democracy building and in mental health. Through exercises,

performances and talks the symposium will discover an artistic

practice and research engaged in creating active forms of response to

one another.


Students are expected to read the materials that will be distributed beforehand; to actively participate in the discussion; to research and look after examples of the subjects exposed in the symposium in their immediate context; to be attentive at the cultural and contextual differences that exist in the different countries.
