Judah Siekkinen _________ Space & Sound


Where religion is and what that means is the concern of this topic. Judah is familiar with the works of Henri Lefebvre, Yi-Fu Tuan, and J. Z. Smith. The works of these scholars is foundational to space and how it is manufactured. In his previous works, Judah has covered how American (US) nationalism uses confederate monuments as sacred spaces.

Things that signal the meaning of place are often called monuments. These monuments function as a space maker.


A pervasive medium, sound is integral to understanding religion. Judah is intrigued by the American Religious Sounds Project. Below is a link to the American Religious Sounds Project. Judah hopes to do something similar to this in the future.
