How do we sense Ljubljana? A discussion about Sensotra’s sensobiographic walks in Ljubljana

With the advent of digital technologies in recent decades, we have also experienced a
fundamental transformation of our environmental relations. At the same time, environments
are undergoing various changes, which can most easily be seen in cities. Moreover, members
of different generations experience these processes in different ways: when observing
youngsters on their smartphones, older people are wondering what is this world coming to,
while the “diginatives” do not understand how can the elderly live in the past. Cultural
anthropologists and cultural studies scholars have found that the ways of experiencing the
environment differs among societies and change through history.

Researchers involved in the SENSOTRA project, i.e. Sensory Transformations and
Transgenerational Environmental Relationships in Europe, 1950‐2020, will study these
processes and relationships. The research will be conducted in three European cities, Turku
(Finland), Brighton (England) and Ljubljana (Slovenia). The following researchers will
present the SENSOTRA project: the principal investigator dr. Helmi Järviluoma (University of
Eastern Finland), local expert dr. Rajko Muršič (University of Ljubljana and University of
Eastern Finland), researcher dr. Laura Formenti (University of Milano‐Bicocca) and art
director of the Sensorium Theater Barbara Pia Jenič, while Blaž Bajič and Sandi Abram
(University of Eastern Finland) will front the conversation.

The debate will be held in Slovene and English. Join us on Friday, October 6 at 11:00 in the
Trubar Literature House (Stritarjeva ulica 7, Ljubljana). Your questions about the pairs, fitted
with cameras and microphones, walking through Ljubljana will be answered. Those interested
in participating in the research will also have an opportunity to join.


The debate is part of SENSOTRA project that has received funding from the European
Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme (grant agreement ERC‐2015‐AdG 694893).
