What happens when we listen closely to the law? How do justice proceedings rely on hearings? What are the limits of possibilities of audio in the courtroom? This seminar explores the role of sound and listening in legal discourse and practice. Bringing together materials and ideas from legal studies, music & sound studies, anthropology, philosophy, and history, we will consider how formal and informal justice claims are made through sound. We will listen to and consider a range of debates, cases, issues, and creative works. The seminar is connected to the new Sound Justice Lab.
