Sensing the City: A Companion to Urban Anthropology
(50 items available)
The city is more than demography and architecture, it is a state of mind. Grioups and subcultures shape and are shaped by urban space and its history according to imaginations and dreams. Urban anthropologists get immersed in this closely knit fabric of urban culture and conduct field research with all their senses. This reader provides a compact introduction to urban anthropology, the key discipline in exploring cities and city life as sites of encounter, conflict and sensation. Sensing the City introduces the most influential writers in the field as well as young and upcoming researchers. With essays by Peter Jackson, Les Back, Ruth Behar, Moritz Ege, Rolf Lindner, Mirko Zardini, Margarethe Kusenbach, and Loic Wacquant.
