We are delighted to announce the publication of a research note in the forthcoming issue of the Journal of Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning, published by the Open University.
The research note draws on our ongoing study in Bristol involving multi-sited ethnography, including participant observation, interviews and ethnographic encounters. We argue that that using anthropological methods affords valuable insights into the relatively neglected aspects of urban learning within the international discourse surrounding learning cities. It can help to reveal the everyday practices through which the city affords learning and to explore how learners improvise and navigate the city.
