You can join SSC Manchester as a Member or as an Associate. The distinction is based on the level and type of active contribution to the day-to-day running of the SSC in Manchester.

Members are teacher-scholars, Associates are involved in supporting the project in other ways. If you would like to participate in any of our activities and are able to attend SSC meetings on a regular basis, please consider becoming a Member.

Associate involvement is more suited to those who wish to support the SSC financially and maintain the right to vote at Annual General Meetings, but who are unable to contribute to the day-to-day running of the SSC in Manchester. But Associates can also simply be satellite academics, affiliated to SSC Manchester. Associates are especially invited to serve as peer-reviewers for our work.

To become a Member or an Associate, please use the form below to write a short explanation of your interests, what you hope to learn and what you think you can contribute.

If you have any questions before joining, please feel free to email us first. Please fill out this simple Word version and return it to us at
