Dr Poppy de Souza is an interdisciplinary researcher affiliated with the School of Arts and Media, UNSW, and the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research, Griffith University. Poppy’s scholarship is concerned with the politics of voice and listening—broadly defined—in conditions of inequality and injustice across a range of contexts. More recently, Poppy's work has examined the relationship between sound, listening and racial in/justice; acoustic violence and the ‘white ear’; and slow listening in the context of settler colonialism and offshore detention regimes. Poppy has previously worked as a curator at the National Film and Sound Archive and in community-based arts settings collaborating with diverse communities to co-create stories about their histories, identities and cultures.
