Urban Ethnography: Sarah Zelner
"Setting the Stage The use of public spaces in the performance of neighborhood identity"

Sarah Zelner is a doctoral candidate in the Sociology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. She will be presenting observations and findings from her ethnographic dissertation project, a community study of the Philadelphia neighborhood of Mount Airy.

The Penn Urban Ethnography Workshop is sponsored by the Culture and Interaction Cluster of the Sociology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. The workshop is designed to promote and support social science research on urban culture using participant observation and other ethnographic methods and techniques. Each week the workshop brings together an interdisciplinary set of faculty and students to present and discuss current research on a variety of issues relevant to contemporary urban life and the culture of cities. We welcome participants from all over the University of Pennsylvania as well as neighboring institutions. For more information, please contact Prof. David Grazian at dgrazian@soc.upenn.edu.
