William Hope's Page

Greetings and salutations!

My name is William Hope and I have had the great pleasure of exploring issues of sounds and senses of place over the Winter term with students of my ANSO 395J Anthropology of the Senses. This was the first time I taught this class and I can honestly say that it is hard to imagine having a better group of people to work with or a better place (in the full sense of that term) to put into practice many of the ideas I have been developing in relation to sensory perceptions, cultural practices, and social relations.

From the outset, we have approached our readings and discussions with an experimental and experiential emphasis. The enthusiasm and hard work that the students invested in this soundscape project was a direct extension of the focused engagements that they maintained throughout the course. In addition to being intellectually rewarding, the whole process has been a lot of fun! I hope you have a moment to explore the many recordings, reflective essays, and other activities that the students have crafted as part of the Knox Soundscape project.
