This reader was assembled collaboratively by participants of three different workshops: Unlearning listening, Urban sound and the politics of memory, and Hearing Montparnasse.

The reader was conceived by Graeme Thomson and Silvia Maglioni, with further texts contributed by Gascia Ouzounian, John Bingham-Hall, Richard Sennett, Christabel Stirling, Merijn Royaards, and Matthieu Saladin. 

It is a work in progress and will continue to grow with further workshops.
