About the Author

Richard E. Ocejo is Associate Professor of Sociology at John Jay College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. His research and teaching interests include urban and cultural sociology, community studies, work and occupations, and research methods.


This volume consists of 11 essays by sociologists from the US, Europe, and Japan, who describe aspects of urban ethnography, including experiences in the field, the method's history, presentation of analysis, and practical guidance. They address the legacy of the Chicago School; how to train ethnographers; issues ethnographers face at field sites and during analysis, in relation to place, interaction order, and class; and the impacts of identity on urban ethnographers, particularly for African American ethnographers, in terms of social location, and for migrant ethnographers. -- Copyright 2019 * Portland, OR *
