All about sound & ethnography

Here at the Centre for Imaginative Ethnography we have decided to start a new bibliography dedicated to sound studies. It is a work in progress and we welcome suggestions! Ely Rosenblum has started us off with this extensive list and we’ve already started to add to it. If you’d like to make a suggestion, please email Denielle Elliott
