[Urban Anthropology: The Complicated Legacy of the Subdiscipline]
Type of publication: Research Article
urban anthropology, urban studies, sociology, institutionalization, interdisciplinarity, Chicago school, Manchester school
Drawing on research monographs, textbooks, and readers popular among scholars and teachers of anthropology, the article traces the history of emergence, institutionalization and today’s situation of urban anthropology. The author demonstrates close links between the sociological and the anthropological roots of the subdiscipline, which have arguably led to the lack of clear disciplinary self-understanding, as well as to the absence of prominent leaders and defined prospects. The case of urban anthropology and its problematic institutionalization testifies to the importance of interdisciplinary studies of the city and its inhabitants.
