Sounding Out the Tourist City is a three-year research project that seeks to explore the impact of tourism on everyday urban public ambiances, with a particular focus on the sonic ambiance. The meteoric rise of Lisbon as a major tourist destination will provide the backdrop for the different cases studies that make up the project.

The project brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers affiliated to the NOVA University, University of Lisbon, University Institute of Lisbon, Universidad de Valladolid and Queens University Belfast.

Sounding Out the Tourist City is funded by the Portuguese Research Council (FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia) through a SR&TD Project Grant (PTDC/ART-PER/32417/2017).
