Présentation de l'éditeur

Urban ethnography is one of the oldest traditions of American social science and has helped define how we think about cities and city dwellers since its inception in the early twentieth century. Renewed interest in urban poverty, the immigrant experience, and gentrification among the public and scholars alike has focused attention on qualitative methods in the social sciences, and the field of urban ethnography in particular receives more attention now than at any point since its inception. The Urban Ethnography Reader assembles the very best of American ethnographic writing, from classic works to contemporary research, and aims to present ethnography as social science, social history, and literature alongside its traditional place as methodology. In addition to an original introduction that highlights the importance and development of the field, Kasinitz, Duneier, and Murphy also provide introductions to each section of the book. The section introductions will cover the period's historical events and how they influenced the study of the city, the major themes and preoccupations of ethnography, what was happening in the social sciences as a whole, and how the excerpts chosen fit into the larger work in which they were originally published. A valuable companion to a wide range of courses on cities across the social sciences, The Urban Ethnography Reader captures the diversity, the historical development, and the continuing importance of the ethnographic approach to understanding American communities.

Sociological Experiments Make Great Reading 11 juin 2014
Par Ed Morgan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Urban Ethnography Reader opens with a story about Professor Robert Park tasking his students with investigating what forces cause social transformation. He urged them to "look at the commonplace with new eyes, to try to understand the world of the stranger next door, and to examine everyday life with both the discipline of scientists and the adventurous spirit of explorers."

I don't know about you, but that line had me hooked! This collection of fifty-two essays covers everything from observations of Chinatown in 1890 by Jacob Riis to a study of Venice Beach and how it has become an upper-class imitation of its humble, bohemian origins by Andrew Deener.

The greatest thing about this collection is that it focuses less on theories and almost entirely on first-hand accounts, interviews, etc. These ethnographers sometimes very literally lived in these different places to better understand a different culture with different world views. Ethnography is one of the oldest sciences and The Urban Ethnography Reader successfully brings together elements of literature, history, and anthropology.

Whether you find that you agree with the observations the various authors make or not, each account is undeniably vivid and detailed. And you don't have to have any previous knowledge of ethnography to understanding their findings. This is a great introductory text, especially if you were to follow it with heavier readings like that found in Cities Perceived: Urban Society in European and American Thought, 1820-1940 or A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction.

Excellent selection and for a great price in paperback. Both classic pieces and contemporary pieces are included, and the editors have done a tremendous job in editing down all of them to a manageable size. I am using this already, and my students love it. Thank you for providing a resource such as this!
