Abstract

This paper presents a conceptual and methodological approach for researching a neighbourhood in Manaus by identifying a range of social conditions useful for better understanding how urban change and development affects a community and its residents. Manaus, in Brazil’s Amazonia region, received much criticism from sceptics as a host city. Part of the issue was the US$300 million was spent on a 40,000+ seat upgraded stadium in a city with no regular sporting tournaments. This paper positions the need to look beyond the tangible features and assess social impacts based on community perceptions to locate local meanings of change. The purpose of this paper is to develop and put forward a plan for conducting future research following the hosting of mega-events in Manaus by framing a conceptual approach and the use of ethnography.
