The Labour In Mining – Working Group is happy to announce its participation to the International Conference “Futures in the History of Deindustrialisation” which will take place in Bologna, October 13-15, 2022.
The workshop is jointly organised by the ELHN Working Groups: “Memory and Deindustrialisation”, “Labour in Mining” and “Workers, Labour and Labour History in East-Central Europe” within the European Labour History Network, Department of History and Cultures of the University of Bologna, Department of Education of University of Roma Tre, the Museo del Patrimonio Industriale Bologna and the Italian Labour History Association (SISLAV).
Deindustrialisation seems to possess a Janus-faced character as it entails a (potentially nostalgic) perspective towards the past and one (potentially fearful) towards the future. Thus, in this workshop, we aim to investigate the ways in which individuals and communities, trade unionists and politicians, scholars and artists envisaged their future once industry would be gone. What kinds of images of futurity did historical actors develop amidst the very process of industrial change?
