Urban Anthropology Unbound

Series Editor:

Editorial Board:
Ferne Edwards, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Carolin Genz, Humboldt University of Berlin

Urban spaces are centers for human and non-human activity, as well as agents entangled in networks both material and immaterial, real and imagined. Urban Anthropology Unbound unpacks the usual assumptions of an anthropology of urban life and what this means for understanding past, present, and possible urban futures. It promotes urban ethnography as a grounded, interdisciplinary methodology to study spatial phenomena as they interface with social and cultural ones and offers ways to understand, interpret, make, and practice urban lifeworlds. 

This series seeks ethnographic-based knowledge, with a particular interest in the unconventional, from sensory explorations to virtual spaces, and beyond.

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. All formal submissions should include an abstract of 300 words, and be sent directly to the series editor ( with Berghahn Books ( cc'd.
