LimerickSoundscapes Research Cluster

LimerickSoundscapes Research Cluster comprises applied researchers from urban ethnomusicology, urban sociology, digital media studies, and sound- scapes studies. The cluster has facilitated the creation and ongoing maintenance of an online sonic map of the City of Limerick (www.limericksoundscapes. ie), collected by and for the citizens of Limerick. LimerickSoundscapes provides an ever-growing, rich repository of sonic heritage while also modelling processes of critical citizenship through creative engagement. The cluster has held an international conference (2014), followed by a special journal edition (2015). Members continue to engage with city-based groups, generating digital educational resources and publishing research in peer-reviewed, international journals and books.
