Emergence to clearance
The housing question in the district of Ancoats
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Focusing on the district of Ancoats in Manchester, de Noronha and Silver examine how its housing geographies and the lives of its residents have been shaped by shifting priorities and interventions of both capital and the state over the past two centuries. They outline the critical insights from Engels set out in The Housing Question. They then mobilise these ideas through thinking about the emergence of slum housing in the district and the subsequent interventions by the local state to improve these conditions through municipal housing projects.
