Workshop in Urban Ethnography (Socy 630)
The ethnographic interpretation of urban life and culture. Conceptual and methodological issues will be discussed. Ongoing projects of participants will be presented in a “workshop” format, thus providing participants with critical feedback as well as the opportunity to learn from and contribute to ethnographic work "in progress." Selected ethnographic works will be read and assessed.
Mondays 11:30a.m.-1:20 p.m. (8 Prospect Place, Room 119)
