Manchester International Summer School
The Manchester International Summer School (MISS) is a multi-disciplinary course which explores British culture and history through the prism of Manchester and its region.
Do you want to know how industrialisation changed everything - from how we work and where we live, to what we do in our leisure time? Are you interested in the role played by Manchester and Liverpool in the development of British popular music? How football developed from a leisure pursuit to a multi-billion pound industry? How what happened in Manchester impacted on the Bronte sisters in Haworth? How the inhabitants of the 'real' Downton Abbey coped with these changes? Then this is the course for you.
