Lawrence Abu Hamdan «[inaudible] A Politics of Listening in 4 Acts»
A Politics of Listening is a politics that moves away from classic notions of advocacy and of giving people a voice. It is not a call for free speech or to have an equal platform for all voices to be heard – it is an intervention into and a reorganisation of the ways in which we listen to speech. A Politics of Listening does not simply seek to amplify voices but attempts to redefine what constitutes speech itself.
