Listening as Transformative Practice
Much recent work from within geography has considered the significance of listening as a practice that denotes intimacies and simultaneously carves out possibilities for research, including a more informed reading of processes that constitute everyday life. By and large, geographic explorations of listening operate primarily on the idea that listening is primarily an aural experience. Much less consideration has been given to the importance of attending, an idea that suggests sustained sensory, affective, and material presence in listening. By proposing the idea that listening is a process of attending, geographers open the possibility to reflect on the possibility and promise of issues that go beyond the realm of the ear. When recognized as a process of attending or, listening makes perceptible a mood, the materiality of breath, and the conveyance of a digital message.
