Welcome to the CIE’s latest series: Soundings!

This is a new blog series focusing on sound and ethnography, co-curated by CIE member Ely Rosenblum, Denielle Elliott, and Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier. 

Soundings feeds off of the energy gained from the Sound Studies: Art, Experience, Politics conference (see below) and the prospect of a sonic ethnography. This blog aims to identify and analyse the sounds often ignored, silenced or policed: protests, urban soundscapes, and domesticity, for example. And to consider the ways in which anthropologist and artists might take seriously sounds in their research, practice and teaching. And what better place than the CIE for a blog like this!
