Summer 2014 marks the first cities@manchester Summer Institute of Urban Studies. It will take place at the University of Manchester over the week 29 June to 4 July. Open to just 25 doctoral students (usually post-fieldwork), postdoctoral researchers, and recently appointed faculty/lecturers (normally within three years of first continuous appointment), the Institute comprises an intensive, week-long programme of activities.
It is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the innovatory developments and enduring controversies in urban studies, as well as mentoring and support in the different aspects of the academic labour process, from applying for grants to designing courses, from editing books and special issues of journals to writing book proposals, and from publishing in journals to working at the academic/non-academic interface. It consists of panels, lectures, reading grouops, with participants involved in shaping the final programme.
