This week, join us for a panel discussion about the world of ‘hearables’.
We’ll be hearing from:
Brent Edwards, Director of the National Acoustics Laboratories
Nicole Matthews, Senior Lecturer and author of Digital Storytelling in Health and Social Policy
Matthieu Recugnat, Post-Doctoral Engineer and Researcher
Brent, Nicole and Matthew will be discussing the opportunities and risks posed by ‘hearables’. Some of the questions they’ll be considering include what use do hearables serve? How are they affecting hearing healthcare? What do they mean for accessibility and how we consider our identities?
Moderator: Ryssa Moffat, Macquarie University PhD Candidate
