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?

4. Greening / Industrienatur / Ecologizzazione / verdissage

Friday January 15th 10h00-12h00 EST

Chairperson: Petra Dolata

Other Presenters: Alice Mah, Jana Golombek, Greg Wilson, Steven High, Lucie Morisset, Lauren Laframboise.

This workshop considers the ways that deindustrialization gets entangled with the language of environmentalism in different contexts, including how deindustrialized areas get “regenerated,” former industrial buildings “recycled,” and new-build manufacturing gets located on “greenfield sites.” The German concept of Industrienatur will also be introduced as will the Anthropocene.
