Abstract:

  • The Book of Nadine explores the audial representation of Nadine Ross, a prominent black South African female character of the popular video game Uncharted 4, voiced by Laura Bailey, a white American voice actress. South African participants were invited to listen to short snippets of dialogue from the game, focusing on Nadine’s “South African” English accent, and were then invited to create and record fictional backstories explaining her accent. This project is a collection of those diverse voiced South African fictional narratives.
