[Archive] Spatial Ethnography Lab

Spatial Ethnography Lab - is committed to developing new, experimental methodology connecting ethnographic research at the local, micro-scale to research at increasingly larger scales using data visualization techniques and landscape ecology network analysis.  the lab’s associates are drawn from a network of academics and practitioners with long term research interests in specific places, connected to each other through previous collaborative work and exchange.  our current projects are based in Mumbai, India and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and we are committed to adding sites and projects incrementally based on associates’ interests.  Spatial Ethnography Lab was co-founded by Vyjayanthi V. Rao, Director of Terreform and is a new initiative of Terreform.

Spatial Ethnography Lab is committed to developing new, experimental methodologies connecting ethnographic research at the local, micro-scale, to research at increasingly larger scales through the use of data visualization techniques and landscape ecology analysis. The lab’s associates are drawn from a network of academics and practitioners with long term research interests in specific places connected to each other through previous collaborative work and exchange. Our current projects are based in Mumbai, India; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and the Nile River Delta, Egypt. We are committed to adding new sites and projects, incrementally, based on associates’ interests and growing partnerships. Spatial Ethnography Lab is a new initiative of Terreform, co-founded by anthropologist Vyjayanthi V. Rao, Director of Terreform and  Vineet Diwadkar, a designer and urban planner.
