Sensotra project

by Heikki Uimonen

Sensory Transformations and Transgenerational Environmental Relationships in Europe, 1950-2020 (SENSOTRA) is a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant funded five-year-long-project led by professor Helmi Järviluoma. The project aims at producing new understandings of the changes in people’s sensory environmental relationships in three European cities during a particular period in history, 1950–2020, through a new transgenerational methodology, ethnographic «sensobioraphy».

The findings will challenge existing ideas about shared experiences across generations, about how people share sensory experiences and about the use of digital technologies in urban space. The interdisciplinary impact extends beyond cultural, sound, and music studies to areas of psychology, human geography, environmental aesthetics, and media history and theory. At present we are still able to study people ethnographically who were born in the 1930s and 1940s, who therefore lived their early years without digital technologies. The moment is also ideally suited for studying generations born straight into the digital world, where there is a need to enable young and older people to maintain a many-faceted relationship with their environments.
