Urban Anthropology Unbound

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, as well as sensory explorations and beyond.
