Comparing the city of Manchester, ten years after it hosted the Commonwealth Games, with London - host to the Olympic Games in 2012, this two day workshop invites critical inter-disciplinary discussion and evaluation of the legacies of sporting mega-events for post-industrial British cities.
The workshop is funded by the new Urban Experiments research theme at CRESC http://www.cresc.ac.uk/our-research/urban-experiments and brings together twelve academics whose research is concerned, in various ways, with exploring the socio-economic, political and material transformations brought about by post-industrialisation and/or sporting mega events billed as catalysts for urban regeneration.
