dc.description This Audio Feature sort of attempts to shed light on how important this family home is to the people living in it and what it would mean to sell it (when and if it ever gets sold). en_US
dc.description.abstract This Audio Feature is a documentation of my family home, built in 1927, in Zamalek, Cairo. As my grandmother is getting older, the inevitability of selling the house is unavoidable. The voices of the people you will hear are either currently living here or have lived here before. Some of the stories can be funny and some are a little upsetting. Regardless, this Audio Feature will let the listeners move within the spaces of the house. Special thanks to my mom (Mervat Salem), my cousin (Nadia Khalifa), our neighbor (Thomas Hartwell) and my lovely grandmother (Faiza Abdeen), for their thoughts on the family home. This audio feature was produced for the Audio Production course at the American University in Cairo taught by Professor Kim Fox in the fall semester of 2018. en_US
