Abstract

[Book abstract:] As communicative, cultural, and political spaces, cities present a vast array of racial, ethnic, national, sexual, and socioeconomic experiences around which human communities take shape. This shaping forms a germinal point of mass cultural life. City planners decide where buildings and neighborhoods are developed, which ultimately affects who residents interact with, how they get there, and why they choose city life. From these experiences, boundaries and possibilities arise that define cultures of “the city.” In Communication, Culture, and Making Meaning in the City: Ethnographic Engagements in Urban Environments, contributors focus on theorizing the notion of “the city” as a communicatively constituted cultural space, drawing on situated, reflexive ethnographic examinations of “the city” to show the complex and varied ways in which cities produce social meaning.
