Justine Lloyd


Justine Lloyd lectures in the Culture and Everyday Life stream at the Department of Sociology, Macquarie University, Sydney.

Her research aims to understand the social dimensions of listening practices (See O’Donnell, Lloyd & Dreher 2009). Together with Ilaria Vanni, Tanja Dreher, Chris Ho and Devleena Ghosh, Justine has been involved in a UTS‐based project assessing media practices and cultural citizenship in a community media organisation, Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE). This project was awarded ARC Linkage funding in the 2007 round in partnership with Arts NSW and the Australia Council.

As part of the Listening Project Justine co‐convened a workshop on ‘Technologies of Listening’ in July 2008, and is co-editing a special issue of the journal New Media and Society on this topic with Kate Crawford, which will be forthcoming in 2011-2012.

Justine is also working on a book manuscript based on an ARC postdoctoral fellowship project conducted during 2004‐2007 on the pre‐history of feminist programming on Australian and Canadian public service radio. Based on both audio and written archives, this study explores the feminine public sphere as imagined by the ABC and CBC before second wave feminism, and will be accompanied by a radio documentary drawing on rare audio recordings of speeches, debates and discussions by women journalists and presenters, and will include many useful homemaking tips.

From 2005-2010, Justine was a board member of Newcastle community arts and media organisation Octapod. She is on the editorial board of the journal Space and Culture.

She is currently working on her new staff grant research The News Game: a possible framework for evaluating mediated listening with research assistant Paul Byron.
