- The Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives, that has developed toolkits on different qualitative methods as part of Real Life Methods, an ESRC National Centre for Research Methods.
- The Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology (that sits in our Social Anthropology department), focuses on ethnographic methods and experimental methods in visual, sensory and aural anthropology.
- Methods@manchester, funded by the Faculty of Humanities, promote and facilitate methods-related events across the University.
