Social Work Faculty Named Senior Fellow, Yale Urban Ethnography Project
August 19, 2014 - Dr. Carol Cleaveland, Associate Professor, Department of Social Work has been selected to become a Senior Fellow of the Yale Urban Ethnography Project.
The Urban Ethnography Project, part of the Department of Sociology at Yale University, is composed of a community of participant observers who are working in the traditions of DuBois, Park, Burgess, Thomas, Blumer, Hughes, Drake and Cayton, Gans, Goffman, and Becker, among others. Bringing professionals, scholars, and motivated students together in workshops, colloquiums, conferences, and through study, we hope to provide an energetic forum for raising questions and finding new answers. While the promise of sociological fieldwork continually branches outward in new directions with varying philosophical and methodological approaches, we hope that coming together in this way will fortify and guide us as we think about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
