“Chasing Birdsongs: Biodiversity, Post-Conflict, Development and Epistemologies of sound in Twenty-First Century Colombia”
In this paper, I analyze and contrast the aural epistemology beneath birdwatching in contemporary Colombia with the birdsongs in Ana Maria Romano’s “El Suelo desde el Viento” (The land from the Wind). Such comparison suggests that listening to birds can be sensorial means to study understandings of nature and environment in relation with hegemonic notions of biodiversity and alternative experiences of acoustic ecology and listening.
