Urban Research Laboratories
Friends, we open registration for the participants of urban research laboratories, which will be held in different districts of Moscow within the project of the Museum of Moscow Street Lecture Hall. Local History. Season 3.

We invite for participation in the labs those who want to try themselves as researchers in one of the Moscow districts. Your research can be about the past of the neighborhood as well as its present, such as places of power in the neighborhood, old-timers, interesting events or initiatives.

We will discuss methods of anthropological research, review existing practices and examples; understand how to conduct observation, interview, and build trust and rapport in the conversation. Separately, we will talk about ethical issues to consider.

After the lab, participants will conduct their own small-scale research in the neighborhood and be able to present it at the Museum of Moscow in October.
