The annual SSPSSR UG Summer School in Urban Ethnography provides participants with direct experience of urban ethnography and equips them with skills for future research. It gives students the opportunity to immerse themselves in 'natural' social environments and learn to tune into what is going on around them, making the strange familiar and the familiar strange. It is an opportunity for students to deepen their knowledge of ethnography both in the classroom and in the city, and with an implicitly comparative stance. 

The Summer School sets ethnography in its intellectual context paying attention to its renaissance through the development of visual and sensory approaches in addition to a reliance on direct observation and interaction. The specific themes of the 2019 Summer School are:

  • Exploring rhythm in city life
  • Cultural and religious difference
  • Multisensory ethnography in contested spaces: segregation and sex work
