Think, Learn and Explore
The Urban Anthropology Lab, or UAL blog, is a team-led initiative conceptualised by Dr Chakraverti Mahajan, the teacher in charge of Urban Anthropology at the Department of Anthropology, University of Delhi. The blog primarily aims to curate practical engagements of students pursuing Urban Anthropology course at the department. Through this blog, we also aim to develop a pedagogy of teaching and rethinking methods to study ‘urban’ with anthropology’s theoretical and methodological traditions and inculcating interdisciplinary values. The blog began in 2018 when Urban Anthropology was officially introduced as an elective and core subject for BSc and MSc students at the department. Since then, this space has attempted to curate the essays submitted by the students and provide exposure to writing and dissemination for the broader audience.
