11. A.- Interactive Activity (25 min) Urban Ethnography: THE WIRE MAIN CONCLUSION The Wire’s exploration of sociological themes is truly exceptional. Indeed I do not hesitate to say that it has done more to enhance our understandings of the challenges of urban life and urban inequality than any other media event or scholarly publication, including studies by social scientists… Professor William Julius Wilson, Harvard University Seminar about The Wire, 4th April 2008.

12. A.- Interactive Activity (25 min) Urban Ethnography: THE WIRE MAIN CONCLUSION The Wire develops morally complex characters on each side of the law, and with its scrupulous exploration of the inner workings of various institutions, including drug-dealing gangs, the police, politicians, unions, public schools, and the print media, viewers become aware that individuals’ decisions and behaviour are often shaped by - and indeed limited by - social, political, and economic forces beyond their control". Professor William Julius Wilson, Harvard University Seminar about The Wire, 4th April 2008.
