This course familiarizes students with urban research methods that expose and emphasize urban processes, adaptation and change, rather than seeing the city as a static object. Tying ethnographic and co-research methods with representation and mapping skills, this course encourages students to invent tools and methods for representing urban processes. Students workshop group projects as they dialectically emerge from the ethnographic process and explore little-known and often deliberately marginalized processes that affect the production, quality, and use of urban spaces.
