SEMINAR SERIES AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE

Tremulous Images: visualising sound as a memory of place and conflict in Okinawa

Dr Rupert Cox, University of Manchester

Wednesday 6 November at 5.30 pm

Sound is a way of understanding how the memory of conflict resides in place through resonance, reverberation and reflection. This presentation will explore the conceptualisation, making and reception of a ‘sound-film’ titled ‘Zawawa’, an Okinawan word meaning the sound of sugar cane rustling in the wind. This sound is heard by inhabitants of the island of Okinawa as a felt memory of the Pacific war and its post-war aftermath and is presented in the film’s design as part of an argument for listening as a means to apprehend the different and sometimes competing political expressions of Okinawan autonomy from Japan and the US military.
