In the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, Concordia researchers Jason Camlot and Katherine McLeod co-produced "How are we listening, now? Signal, Noise, Silence" for the SpokenWeb podcast series in order to document our reactions to the changes in our sonic environments during this time of social distancing and self-isolation.

Over Zoom, Jason asked his literature and sound studies class at Concordia how their listening practices have changed. How are we listening to the world around us, and to each other, now? How are we listening to poetry readings now? And what does our choice of what we are listening to tell us about how we are feeling?

Join us on June 9 at 12:00 p.m. for a special airing of this podcast, followed on June 18 by a live conversation with Jason, Katherine, and several special guests from across Concordia and beyond, during which they will revisit the question at the heart of the original podcast, several months after the pandemic first disrupted how we live, work, see, talk, hear, and listen.
