CURA’s Urban Methodologies Summer School

The Centre for Urban Research on Austerity (CURA) Urban Methodologies Summer School is now open for applications.

The Summer School will feature leading academics delivering sessions on novel and innovative approaches to cities and urban politics. We are very pleased to have David Bailey (Birmingham), Sarah Hall (Manchester), Michael Hoyler (Loughborough) and Cristina Temenos (Manchester) who will be delivering masterclasses for attendees based on their own exciting research agendas in this area. Selected participants will also be able to present their research in one of two Doctoral Student plenaries that will be attended by a CURA panel of researchers for feedback and wider discussion of their own research projects.

It will be held at De Montfort University on 12 – 13 June 2019. Further information and the application form is available here:

The Summer School is open to researchers based at any university or research institute, or without a current affiliation. There is no charge to attend and a limited number of bursaries are available for one night’s accommodation in Leicester. Early career academics, doctoral researchers and advanced postgraduate students working in or on any area of urban politics, policy, political economy, sociology and geography are eligible to apply. Deadline for applications is Friday 26 April.
