Abstract

This paper makes a case for multi-sensory research. By engaging with questions of ethnicity, culture, space and sound, the discussion will show how taken-for-granted, everyday practices can be part of the ways in which whiteness is produced within health care spaces, affecting how different bodies are able to move through and occupy space. The paper addresses questions of ethics and responsibility in multi-cultural contexts, suggesting how a multi-sensory orientation can uncover often hidden relationships of power that can help us to better understand and attend to the demands that ethnic and cultural difference can make upon caring relationships and multi-cultural hospitality.
