Listening and Questioning

Fall 2022

Taught By: Julia Furlan

Section: AX

CRN: 11147

Credits: 4

In this listening workshop and speaker series, students will open their ears to a wide range of compelling audio from across the audio industry. Each week, we'll listen to work and, whenever possible, discuss it with the creator. Guest speakers will be audio professionals as well as multi-disciplinary storytellers whose careers represent many paths of journalism and beyond. Students will lead the class discussion with ample time to learn from guest speakers about their careers while looking critically at the questions of power inherent in making audio journalism. Together, we will open our ears to new and old audio, question the techniques and ethics behind audio journalism and dream new ways of listening and creating. Students will track their listening with journals, be responsible for leading discussions and submit and present a final zine project at the end of the semester. This course satisfies the Form Elective requirement for the Journalism + Design major.
