This lab course provides an opportunity for us to learn together about the city as a theme in human history, as a framework for analyzing social change and progress, and as an organizational and infrastructural grid that shapes our daily lives. Everyone in this class lives in a city -- New York City -- and experiences urban life in particular ways. The lab course will build on your lived experiences and knowledge, and will harness social science research methods to enable you to conduct original research on topics that fascinate you. Combining your ethnographic research on urban contexts with scholarly literature on cities—in theory, practice, and comparative perspective—the lab provides a unique opportunity for you to create new reflections and to generate new knowledge about urban life in New York City and the Bronx.
