cities@manchester at the University of Manchester
cities@manchester draws both on the city of Manchester’s unique place at the epicentre of industrial capitalism, and its subsequent strategies to set out its post-industrial futures, and the University of Manchester’s position as one of the top universities in the world.
cities@manchester is committed to an increased understanding of the global urban condition, past, present and future. It brings together work from across the arts and humanities, the social sciences and the business school and is committed both to studying and to changing the world through engaging with a range of global, national and local stakeholders.
cities@manchester has a strong international dimension. Scholars and students do fieldwork in both the global ‘north’ and ‘south’ and are involved in international academic, activist and practitioner networks in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
