“Hearing and Listening ” 

Professor David Baguley 
University of Nottingham

David Baguley is a Professor of Hearing Sciences at the University of Nottingham, based in the Nottingham NIHR Biomedical Research Centre. His research themes include tinnitus and hearing loss associated with chemotherapy treatment for cancer. For more than thirty years David worked at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, latterly as Head of Audiology and Hearing Implants, and he still works clinically in both NHS and private contexts. He has published over 150 scientific papers, many book chapters, and several books. David is an ordained Anglican minister, and is a self supporting Associate Minister at St Martin’s Church, Sherwood, Nottingham.

 In his presentation David will take a tour of the human hearing system. He will explore the consequences of hearing too little (hearing loss), hearing too much (hyperacusis), and tinnitus. David will discuss the difference between hearing and listening, and what this may mean in practice in terms of faith.
