  1. Hi Eric – I was unable to come to your seminar the other evening but I am extrremely interested in the notion/practice of soundmapping. I would love to talk with you about this in connection with oral history and mapping research I do in west Namibia (see http://www.futurepasts.net)
    Thanks!
