Ethnographies of place: a new urban research agenda

  • Alan Mayne (a1) and Susan Lawrence (a2)
    • Published online: 01 December 1999

How might one tap the idioms of vanished communities once local knowledge has faded? How might one chart the mental landscapes of locales that have been overlaid by other people's understandings and whose material forms have been erased by urban redevelopment? This paper integrates history and archaeology as it attempts an ethnographic re-reading of one such precinct in Melbourne, Australia.
