Recommended this text for geography students (Ma.) is a class about social media geography. Gave some valuable background information and helped to prepare my students for upcoming classes, like "geographic documentation".
This book is a valuable addition to the books available in the context of audio within the creative industries.
perfect fieldwork guide and probably the best ethnographic manual for audio work within the field.
This concise textbook admirably combines theoretical reflection and plentiful practical advice for undertaking audio research. The level at which the discussion is pitched is certainly suitable for latter stage undergraduates. I like that the authors emphasise and explain the contribution audio documentary can make to an activist mode of research. However, the specialist nature of the research methods dealt with mean that I cannot recommend it as a key course text. The book will be of most use to my students as an introduction to less frequently used ethnographic methods incorporating sound.
Provides some useful background for individuals investigating paractice.
Excellent book for advanced qual
