  Course Description
This seminar provides a foundational overview of urban ethnographies, emphasizing theoretical, epistemological, and methodological considerations. The course readings include a brief review of classic urban ethnographies but the central focus is contemporary work. The aim of the course is to review and understand major critiques of the idea of ethnographic inquiry through focused reading of recently published monographs. By completing this course, students will gain in-depth knowledge of urban ethnography as a field of inquiry in the social sciences.
