Dear members and friends of the Labour in Mining – Working Group. 

Happy New Year 2023!

We warmly welcome you to LiM’s 7th Newsletter. 

This is a periodic update on the activities of the WG and the most relevant events, publications, and conferences in the field of mining history selected by LiM’s coordinators.

This year 2023 has begun with great news: the Special Issue “Social and environmental effects of mining in Southern Europe” in AREAS-Revista Internacional de ciencias sociales has been published ! 

The issue gathers some contributions presented during the 3rd ELHN Conference 2019 in Amsterdam, in which LiM organised 2 sessions related to living conditions in mining towns and professional health and diseases in mining.  

Enjoy the readings!

The most valuable resources of this network are members. We would like to welcome those who have recently joined LiM:

Adrián Palacios Mateo, Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zaragoza, works on education from a historical perspective. His research focuses on the relationship between the industrialization process brought by the mines during the 19th century, and the literacy levels of miners, the requirements for skilled workers or child labour.

Clara Lea Dallaire-Fortier, PhD candidate at Lund University, works on the ecological transition and historical systemic changes. Her research focuses on how lived experiences and needs from local populations can inform and interact with large industrial changes and macroeconomic dynamics with a special attention to mining industry. Se is a member of oikos LEAP program’s Early Career Researchers Track, and a Student Representative on the Board of the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE).
