Lucia Farinati and Claudia Firth

Listening in Solidarity, Listening in Disagreement


Taking their recent book The Force of Listening as a starting point, Lucia Farinati and Claudia Firth will facilitate a workshop exploring how listening can contribute to forms of solidarity and what it might mean to listen in disagreement. At a time when opinions appear to be polarising and media can easily create echo chambers in which people hear only what they agree with, these questions seem crucial for processes of social transformation. Working with participants, their experiences, backgrounds and opinions, as well as the environment of the library, the workshop will touch on these issues and ask if perhaps solidarity and disagreement do not have to be completely opposing or separate. All welcome.
