Community home page
The Manchester Institute of Social and Spatial Transformations (MISST) is an interdisciplinary research institute comprised of over 30 researchers from Cultural Studies, Economics, Human Geography, Law and Sociology.
MISST was originally established as The Institute of Culture, Gender and the City (ICGC) in 2003 as part of the University's restructuring of research into 10 specialist research institutes. The Institute was renamed and restructured as MISST in 2007 to more accurately reflect the research being undertaken by its members.
