Reanimating Industrial Spaces : Conducting Memory Work in Post-Industrial Societies Hardback
Edited by Hilary Orange
Part of the UCL Institute of Archaeology Publications series
Reanimating Industrial Spaces explores the relationships between people and the places of former industry through approaches that incorporate and critique memory-work.
The chapters in this volume consider four broad questions: What is the relationship between industrial heritage and memory?
How is memory involved in the process of place-making in regards to industrial spaces?
What are the strengths and pitfalls of conducting memory-work?
What can be learned from cross-disciplinary perspectives and methods?
The contributors have created a set of diverse case studies (including iron-smelting in Uganda, Puerto Rican sugar mills and concrete factories in Albania) which examine differing socio-economic contexts and approaches to industrial spaces both in the past and in contemporary society.
A range of memory-work is also illustrated: from ethnography, oral history, digital technologies, excavation, and archival and documentary research.
