Sonic Spaces

A diverse range of talks exploring world of audio and sound culture.

‘Sonic Spaces’ is organised by Dr Jennifer O’Meara in Trinity’s Department of Film (School of Creative Arts) as part of the Creative Arts Practice Research theme. This new series is supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute.
