Deindustrialisation, heritage and memory: A network for stronger collaboration

The deindustrialisation, heritage and memory network will bring together academics, heritage organisations, cultural groups and community historians interested in deindustrialisation and the ways in which these processes are remembered and memorialised.
Led by the Newcastle University Oral History Collective, with generous funding from the British Academy, there will be a series of workshops and events held across in UK in 2018-2019.

Each event will feature presentations and discussions of the ways in which academics and non-academic partners can collaborate more strongly in the dissemination of research.

The events will be held in the following locations, with specific dates still to be confirmed for the second and third:

September 28 2018: Strathclyde University, Glasgow – (Keynote Dr Jackie Clarke)
November 2018: Newcastle University, Newcastle – (Keynote Prof Graham Smith)
March 2019: University of Kent, Canterbury – (Keynote Prof Tim Strangleman)

Bursaries are available for travel and accommodation for those travelling distances to attend events. To register for the network and to join the mailing list, please email andy.clark@newcastle.ac.uk.
Further information about each workshop will be circulated in due course once arrangements have been finalised.
