Prof. Gascia Ouzounian, Dr Sarah Lappin and RTC researcher Conor McCafferty will chair a session at the 15th Architectural Humanities Research Association International Conference at TU Eindhoven. This year's conference is called 'Smartness? between discourse and practice'.
Our session Sound and the Smart City: Mapping Sound and Noise will explore the politics of sound mapping and noise mapping in urban contexts. We invite papers that consider such pertinent issues as: sound and the smart city; sound mapping projects whose concerns range from acoustic ecology to urban sensorial history; the role of mapping in sound art, with particular attention to participatory and community-based art projects; recent innovations in noise mapping, including participatory noise mapping apps and automatic noise monitoring systems.
The deadlines for submissions can be found here.
