The ethics of listening to build community in the commons

24 Apr 2018

Bronwen Low, Chloe Brushwood Rose and Paula M. Salvio?s deceptively small book ?Communitybased Media Pedagogies: Relational Practices of Listening in the Commons? (2017) makes a thoughtful contribution to the work on digital storytelling as participatory youth media production. There are three themes in the book which expand our understanding of story work and that I would like to engage with in more detail: (1) the notion of intersubjective listening and whether or how it can be taught; (2) the stories and storytellers who ?make trouble?; and (3) the question of audience and what it does to storytellers and the stories they tell.
