Zsuzsanna Ihar leads us through field recordings captured in the marginal settlements of Baku, capital of Azerbaijan. She traces sounds that haunt, interrupt, and resist processes of gentrification, displacement, and capitalist profiteering.
Edited and hosted by Eben Kirksey.
This was a departmental seminar at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography in the 2022-23 academic year. The recordings were only possible thanks to a team dedicated staff and students from The School:
