Elizabeth Parks, Ph.D.
Dr. Parks’ research was a catalyst for the Listening Project.  Embracing a mixed method approach that draws from both social sciences and humanities, her current research focuses on the ways in which cultural diversity and embodied difference impacts perceptions and practices of “good listening” that ultimately promote ethical dialogue across difference.
