The Urban Ethnography Lab would like to welcome you to our blog.

The posts in this blog are meant to introduce you to who we are and to our main objectives as a group of graduate students and faculty collaborating between the Georg Simmel Centre for Metropolitan Studies in Berlin and the Ethnography Lab at the University of Toronto. This collaboration has forged a new lab called the Urban Ethnography Lab.

We will update the posts as new projects and activities arise.
