Abstract

Tom Ottway firstly provides a broad overview of how home has been conceptualised in terms of space and place by academics in fields as varied as cultural studies, urban studies, sound studies, sonic art, geography, history, law, criminology and migration studies. He then demonstrates that by actively engaging in ‘doing’ a critical geography of home, by creating and analysing audio ethnographies, including an auto-audio ethnography of those working together to produce this intervention on home, the gap between academic and participant; academic and artist; analysis and performance is removed, and powerful sonic micro-geographies and micro-histories emerge that constitute ‘life listening’, which inform the writing on home.
