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 leading academics who are working with novel and innovative methodological approaches to understanding the various facets of urban living.

Two Doctoral Student Plenaries will also feature, where selected participants will deliver short fifteen-minute presentations on their own research methodology to receive feedback from participants and a panel of CURA researchers.


The UMSS is open to applicants from any higher education institution, or without a current affiliation, working on areas related to urban politics, policy, political economy, sociology and geography.

The UMSS is free to attend and a limited number of bursaries are available for one night’s accommodation only. Please note on your application if this will be required. There is no charge for participants to attend.

Deadline for applications is Friday 26 April 2019.
