ETHER Podcast Series

Check out what we're learning from ETHER interactions about encounters with difference. How do we theorise them? How do we research them? And, crucially, how do we practise them?

Series 1: The Art of Seeing and Hearing the Other

ETHER Podcast Episode 1
Curating Difference for Collective Action

What do we mean by ‘the Other’ when we speak about ‘encountering the Other’? More specifically, in this podcast we look at the role that social identity categories – like a person’s ethnicity, class, gender, religion, and disability, among others – play in meaningful encounters with difference. Can these categories help negotiate differences? To what extent does a “meaningful encounter with the Other” require going beyond such social categories?
