The interconnectedness between sound and space has been object of ongoing scholarly discussion. While musical disciplines have focused on contemporary processes of displacement and international migration, soundscape studies have, from its very origins, researched the intimate bonds between the sonic environment and the quality of human life.

This 2-day workshop aims to discuss issues of sound and space in its broadest sense, by bringing together scholars from various disciplinary traditions. In this sense, we kindly welcome paper contributions on the issues of sounding and listening practices in relation to human mobility, space occupation, (de)territorialization and migration.
