This week I started a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Manchester Centre for Regional History. The subject? Angel Meadow.
I’ll be studying the origins and persistence of the slum, and trying to find out more about the people who lived there. I’ll use this blog to publicise some of my findings as I go along.
The book is now a key text for students on the Manchester and the City course at MMU and is on sale at Blackwells bookshop on Oxford Road.
I have a couple of talks planned as well in the next few months. I’ll be at the Chorlton Book Festival in November and at Manchester Central Library early next year. Please keep following this blog for the latest updates.
