Climates of Listening: Amplifying Pacific Experiences of Environmental Crisis

Description du projet

Recueillir les expériences des insulaires du Pacifique en matière de changement environnemental

Dans les îles du Pacifique, les conséquences du changement climatique, telles que la montée des eaux et l’intensification des catastrophes naturelles, aggravent les impacts environnementaux actuels de l’extraction des ressources comme l’exploitation minière et la surpêche, ainsi que l’héritage des essais nucléaires. Ces impacts combinés menacent gravement les foyers et les moyens de subsistance des habitants des îles du Pacifique. Le projet CoL, financé par l’UE, examinera de plus près les expériences quotidiennes des insulaires du Pacifique qui vivent ces changements. Il se concentrera plus particulièrement sur les témoignages, la poésie, les sons et les histoires, car ce sont des supports populaires dans les cultures du Pacifique pour se connecter aux connaissances et aux expériences du monde, pour les partager et les communiquer. Le projet développera une «géographie sonore» interdisciplinaire pour mieux comprendre les approches holistiques et dynamiques utilisées pour concevoir et traiter la crise environnementale.

Objectif

"Climates of Listening: Amplifying Pacific Experiences of Environmental Crisis (CoL) is the first practice-led research project to use sound and listening as a framework for expanding understandings of Indigenous Pacific human-environmental relations in the face of rapid ecosystemic transformation. Sonic practices such as storytelling, poetry, singing, music and listening are widely used in Pacific cultures to connect to, make sense of, and communicate knowledge about, the world. Drawing on these practices, this project innovates an interdisciplinary ""sonic geography"" to help scholars and advocates better conceive of the holistic, multifarious and hyperlocalised ways that environmental crisis is felt and attended to. In doing so, it expands existing literature beyond narratives of ""vulnerability"" and ""resilience"", and problematises the politics of representation and translation of Indigenous Pacific experiences into Western ideas and knowledges.
CoL deploys ethnographic material from five frontline Pacific Island sites as a foundation for understanding and communicating Pacific Indigenous-environmental relations through written and artistic forms, including a research monograph, workshops, original sound art pieces and a research exhibition. Based at the world leading Centre for the GeoHumanities (RHUL) in the Department of Geography, the Fellow will be supported in a rich research environment. The Fellow's time at the CGH will not only enhance their trajectory as a research leader in their discipline of Geography, but will also advance their transferable research skills and build their Geography teaching profile. Through a comprehensive suite of research, dissemination and career training activities, this MSCA will greatly increase the Fellow's capacity to secure a permanent academic post in the UK or Europe."
