IAS Fellows’ Seminar – A collaborative listening with the humpback, the currents and the biomass

March 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Joint IAS Fellow’s Seminar by Professor Britt Kramvig (UiT the Arctic University of Norway); Jana Winderen; and Professor Susanne Winterling (Norwegian University of Science and Technology)


In this panel talk, art and science are brought in as equal conversation partners, exploring how we can navigate in sea- and landscapes in order to know it better and in order to tell it; allowing different species – among them human – to speak and recall the forgotten art of deep listening. You are not able to hear if you have no access to the embodied or situated position, for example you are not able to hear a water insect or crab if you don’t know how to position your ear half in and half out of the water. With joint knowledge and respect for invisible positions, we want to create a “larger” soundscape. After having been in a place of dissolving vastness of the Arctic and actually having been there as the humans we few are, being in and being with the elements. By this, we highlight a cohabitation and co living – and the visible and invisible parts of its ecology and political ecology, we will try to mitigate and introduce what listening to means. We would like to guide you through ‘listening’ with our examples of cracks, currents and parts of the biomass.

This collaborative talk is based upon meeting, listening, observing and discussions within the research field of Andenes, Norway.

Places are limited and so any academic colleagues or students interested in attending should register here. Places will be confirmed within 48 hours of receipt (subject to availability).We encourage any attendee in person to take a Lateral Flow Test in advance.
