with Dr. Johanna Motzkau, Senior Lecturer, School of Psychology and Counseling, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, The Open University, UK.

In this talk, Dr. Johanna Motzkau presents the term “cultures of listening” as an analytical tool to understand, what can make listening practices problematic, and how we can transform such troubled practices. Her talk will focus on practices of child protection in the UK. In conversation with Luis Carlos Sotelo Castro, the Acts of Listening Lab’s director, the conversation will explore how oral history performance (and verbatim theatre) can become a tool for intervening in such troubled practices of listening.
