Ethnographic research to describe the myriad "urban characters". Define, conceptualize, and navigate between the spaces and places of city. "Ethnography" itself is a term that was somewhat loosely borrwed from social anthropology, and it alludes to the situated, empirical description of peoples and races.

"Ethnographer synthesizes disparate observations to create a holistic construct of 'culture' or 'society'.".

Völker-Beschreibung


"...ethnography possesses different variants (Hammersley and Atkinson, 1983). Any attempt to define ethnography precisely will therefore obscure important differences in approach. Still, ethnography is generally recognized to rest upon participant observation, a methodology whereby the researcher spends consider"Wable time observing and interacting with a social group. These observations and interactions enable the ethnographer to understand how the group develops a skein of relations and cultural constructions that tie it together."


"These distinguishing characteristics of ethnography are not just methodological but emerge from a particular understanding of the nature of social life."


"Anthropology is the study of all aspects of human culture. Ethnography is a field-based research method – not unique to anthropology – employing observation and interviewing to investigate social practices and the meanings behind social interaction. Ethnology involves the systematic comparison of different cultures using ethnographic research methods to compare and contrast different cultures. The data produced tend to be descriptive and so require qualitative data analysis."
