About this Event

DEINDUSTRIALIZATION & THE POLITICS OF OUR TIME

2020-2021 KEYWORD WORKSHOP SERIES (ZOOM)

The series is organized by the Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time SSHRC Partnership project’s Industrial Closures component, as a first step in thinking transnationally about deindustrialization and its politics. Its goal is to critically examine six keywords in deindustrialization studies and consider their historical emergence and explanatory power across multiple national and thematic contexts. What do these concepts offer us? Why do some concepts emerge in one national context but not another or come to have different meanings? And what are the adjacent or intersecting concepts that emerge in their stead?

3. Brownfield / friche industrielle/ Industriebrache / Area dismessa

Friday December 11th 10h00-12h00 EST

Chairperson: Lachlan MacKinnon

Other Presenters: Jana Golombek, James Rhodes, Steven High, Keith Gildart , Sean O’Connell, Andrew Perchard.

By examining the meaning and significance of “brownfield” in different national contexts we will consider the territorial stigmatization of industrial lands but also the ways that residential areas get stigmatized by industry and its loss. Popular culture will also be considered.
