Martha Radice is a social anthropologist whose work focuses on the social, spatial and cultural dynamics of cities. She has investigated social relations, especially interethnic relations, and the production of space in multiethnic commercial streets in Montréal. Her ongoing areas of interest are urban anthropology, public space, public art and public culture, multiculturalism and cosmopolitanism, applied urban research, and ethnographic methods.
Dr. Radice worked with Solomon Nagler and Kim Morgan at NSCAD University on an interdisciplinary research-creation project, Tracing the City: Interventions of Art in Public Space, exploring how art can shape the urban public and, conversely, how the urban public can shape artistic production. She works with Jill Grant and Howard Ramos on the Halifax team of the Canada-wide Neighbourhood Change Research Project. In winter 2016, she began new research into carnival culture in New Orleans, for which she has been awarded a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation Archive Fellowship.
