Martha Radice

I'm a social anthropologist whose work focuses on the social, spatial and cultural dynamics of cities. For my doctoral research, I used ethnographic methods to investigate public sociability, the mobilization of ethnicity and the production of space in commercial streets in multiethnic neighbourhoods in Montréal. I'm currently extending this work to explore the production of urban public spaces in Halifax, looking in particular at diversity and inclusion, urban material culture and art, and the relationship of public spaces to other urban spaces and the city as a whole. My ongoing areas of interest are urban anthropology, the anthropology of space and place, immigration and interethnic relations and theories of cosmopolitanism. I'm also interested in interdisciplinary and applied research: I'm currently working with colleagues at NSCAD University (a fine arts university) and I have in the past conducted evaluations of social inclusion in high schools and police-community relations in the UK. Publications include Feeling Comfortable?: The Urban Experience of Anglo-Montrealers (Presses de l’Université Laval, 2000, also published in French), recent book chapters on commercial streets, cosmopolitanism and multicultural heritage in urban public space. I contributed to and co-edited with Xavier Leloup Les nouveaux territoires de l’ethnicité (Presses de l’Université Laval, 2008).

Martha Radice commented on Francine Barone's group Urban Anthropology
"Cool sequence and I've put it on my urban anth/soc class website. I agree with Susan about the music. But I don't think it's an ethnographic moment - not until you actually talk with the people involved somehow with the film - the…"

Martha Radice replied to Rick Holden's discussion Ethnicity in urban places in the group Urban Anthropology
"In other words, the 'insider-outsider' boundary is much more important than any ethnic or racial boundary. I would suggest that such a distinction is important in any close-knit kind of neighbourhood, whether it is marked as dangerous or…"
