Welcome to ‘Creating Our Future Histories’, a new collaborative skills-training programme hosted by MMU’s Institute of Humanities and Social Science Research (IHSSR) and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).


The programme, which consists of a series of practice-led workshops and other group activities, is led by Professors Melanie Tebbutt and Berthold Schoene. It is designed to assist early-career academics and local Manchester-based community organisations in the development of their partnership-building skills. The main aim of the programme is to set up actual public-academic research partnerships.


There are 7 research groups within the project. The groups are listed below:
