Includes payment of tuition fees for three years

And a bursary of £5,500 (sterling) per year for three years

* The project will further explore issues relating to city cultures and contemporary

cultural change which have informed their work, and that of the MIPC for some considerable time. Currently MIPC is involved in a variety of projects associated with urban cultural change and the cultural industries. Further information on the work of the Sociology Department and the Manchester Institute for Popular Culture can be

obtained via their respective web sites;

Sociology Department http://www.mmu.ac.uk/h-ss/sis/index.htm

MIPC http://www.mmu.ac.uk/h-ss/mipc/

Conceptual Framework: the principal aim of the investigation will be to consider the extent to which the concepts of lifestyle and identity

can be understood as becoming increasingly located outside of productive processes associated with social class and occupational

activity. In this context one can consider the nature of the claims made regarding a shift from what various authors have described as,

`Fordist to post-Fordist production', `organised to disorganised capitalism', and `industrial to post-industrialism'. Associated with these changes, a number of authors have suggested similar restructurings in cultural life.

This is not a scholarship but a book for finding funds. Author: Margreet Van Muijwijk. 92 Pages. Funds are vital for the further development of gender studies and other feminist activities. It is therefore with great pleasure that we offer you this new WISE booklet. In order to support and empower her members WISE has extended its membership services and provide guides to fund raising. Our first brochure in this series dealt with the European Union, this one concentrates on private sources of funding.

Our new WISE publication makes clear that fund raising is a professional activity requiring more than just a few hours of a scholarís time. We therefore considered it inappropriate to restrict our information to a brief overview of a number of potentiality interesting organizations. As addresses are ever changing a networking directory is in danger of being out of date the moment it is published. We opted, therefore, to include instead chapters on how to develop grant-seeking skill, how to build strategies for exploring sources which could meet your needs. Practical deadlines are given concerning definitions and budgets, and background information includes an overview of the development of the funding movement. Finally we have recorded the stories of a number of women who have managed to obtain grants. In this way, we hope to give you the tools to find your way through the world of private resources.
