Manchester Urban Institute

Our visitors

Over the years the various centres and groups that have come together to form the Manchester Urban Institute have hosted visiting graduate students, post-docs and professors from across a range of disciplines.

Some of these academic visitors have been with us for only a week or two, while others have stayed with us for a few years!  Whether a shorter or longer visit, these colleagues have been important in creating the support intellectual environment that has characterized urban studies at the University.

In recent years, the centres and groups uniting to become the Manchester Urban Institute have hosted the following: 

  • Xiangzheng Deng (Chinese Academy of Sciences)
