Ethnographies sounded on what? Methodologies and sounds, and experiences in Cairo
by Vincent Battesti
to be published in Bloomsbury Handbook of Sonic Methodologies, edited by Michael Bull and Marcel Cobussen, London, Bloomsbury Press, late 2019?

- First §:

Writing that humanities and social sciences—along with ethnology and anthropology—have been deaf to the sonic dimension of social and human life to begin this chapter would be an understatement in such a volume. It is usually agreed to underline that, at these opening moments, it is only in the last decade that there has been an increase in academic literature on such a dimension of our world. I wouldn’t be arguing here about the importance and necessity of this sonic dimension in ethnography. However, I would first ask “what” sounds interest us, “why” and consequently “how”.

- Aim:

This article is a kind of “state of the art” on the ways in which research in anthropology, or related disciplines that claim to be based on ethnographic methodology, has integrated the sound dimension. He very briefly presents, in conclusion, our own work in Cairo (Egypt) as an example.
