LXnights goes to Barcelona

Next week I will be presenting my research on the soundscapes of the Mouraria and the LXnight project in the seminar series organized by the Observatori d’Antropologia del Conflicte Urbà. A great opportunity to meet friends, reengage with the interesting research done by former colleagues of the Universitat de Barcelona, and consolidate our international research network.
