The Centre for Urban Research on Austerity Urban Methodologies Summer School is a two-day event aimed at PhD researchers, early-career academics and advanced postgraduate students.

The UMSS will feature four masterclass sessions led by David Bailey (Birmingham), Sarah Marie Hall (Manchester), Cristina Temenos (Manchester) and Michael Hoyler (Loughborough).
