12. Listening for Coastal Futures

The Conservatory Project

  • Willis Jenkins (author)
This chapter attends to the role of listening in attuning humans to the natural world, specifically in light of a project involving Long-Term Ecological Research oriented around conserving coastal ecosystems. The Conservatory Project integrates perspectives on environmental change from sciences, humanities, and the arts, designing eco-acoustic listening exercises that afford participants an aural sense of their embodiment and embeddedness in a dynamic environment. Listening can facilitate a contemplative awareness that is conducive to non-anthropocentric ways of being in the world.
