New Article on Neighbourhood Identity Early View #sssi #sociology #ethnography

In sociology, there is a growing interest in urban ethnography. Recently, our journal Symbolic Interaction published reviews of Matthew Desmond’s “Evicted“, Emma Jackson’s “Young Homeless People and Urban Space“, and Alice Goffman’s “On the Run“. In her artile “Looking Forward, Looking Back: Collective Memory and Neighborhood Identity in Two Urban Parks” that has just been published on Early View of our journal Sofya Aptekar (University of Massachusetts) uses the urban culturalist lens to investigate why two parks in New York despite their similarities support different kinds of meaning making and use. Members can download the article by clicking the image below.
