Event description

Description

From the invention of the stethoscope to monitor the secret sounds of the body, to the iPod and loudspeaker, join us to trace a history of listening. It will make you hear the everyday sounds that shape our lives anew.

About the Presenter

Sarah Collins works in music history at the UWA Conservatorium of Music. Her research concerns how perceptions of music and sound have shaped ideas about emotions, rationality, national identity and political participation in the past, and what these can tell us about our own soundscapes today.
