Abstrakt

This article considers the benefits of constructivist approaches to the history of audio forensics. It is argued that science and technology studies (STS) open up a new avenue of research on historical uses of sound recordings in the communist security apparatus and offer a perspective that is considerably different from the mainstream historiographical treatment of the state audio surveillance. This claim serves as a basis for discussing the Czechoslovak programme of audio forensics (1975–1989).
