- The students know concepts of urbanity and city and are familiar with analytical perspectives on cities from the discipline of European Ethnology/Cultural Anthropology.

- The students deal with actual questions within the anthropology of cities and know core texts and positions of our discipline and of urban anthropology.

- The students develop multi-perspective empirically based research questions with the example of the "Alpine City" of Innsbruck.

Within the course we are discussing core texts from the flourishing field of anthropology of the city: First, we look at the older Volkskunde-Tradition of not dealing with cities, then we put under scrutiny the boom after the years of 2000 and third we discuss different perspectives on cities and urbanity, e. g. "atmospheres", "urban ethics", "urban perception" or "urban space".

This course is part of a cooperation between the Innsbruck University and the Tyrolean State Museums in preparation of Forum Stadt. It is recommended for students to enrol in all courses, i.e. 645605 (Silke Meyer): MyInnsbruck: Interviews und Interviewanalyse zum Thema Stadtanthropologie, 645617 (Konrad Kuhn): MyInnsbruck: Perspektiven und Zugänge einer urbanen Anthropologie and the course 645614 (Anna Engl, Tiroler Volkskunstmuseum): MyInnsbruck: Kulturwissenschaft und Öffentlichkeit.

Reading of texts, group discussions, work in small groups, inputs on texts or empirical material, development of research questions, recognition of empirical fields.

During the course: preparation of the scientific texts, active participation and engagement during discussions. Presentation on a thematic text in one of the course-lessons ("Input").

Research and realization of a self-contained work (short text, map, guide, photo-work, audio-piece)
