I am a researcher working on performance in contexts of transnational migration, and facilitate Home Makers: a collection of soundwalks recorded and co-edited with migrant domestic workers in the UK and Lebanon. Each soundwalk can be listened to following simple prompts, or in the location where it was recorded, chosen by each speaker for its personal significance. The experiences you will hear about range from delivering supplies to COVID-positive domestic workers, to collective activism, to defying and escaping abusive employers, to reconciling faith and homophobia. The website hosts transcripts, further resources and more information about the process of collaboration.
