Putting the Body of Manchester on Display

(Stephen Walker, Architecture)

Stephen’s project uses Digital Humanities research techniques to explore how the human body has been controlled and displayed by and in the city, its growth and its fabric; and how Digital Humanities techniques can, in turn, display these issues and open up the topic to new insights and analysis.

The project uses GIS mapping alongside the University of Manchester’s Map Collections to examine Manchester’s historic city centre from 1730 to the present day.


This project is funded by the JRRI Digital Humanities grant and runs from September 2019 – July 2020.
