[Commlist] CMNH Symposium. Postindustrial imaginaries: beyond progress, memory and loss

Wed Feb 27 13:05:01 GMT 2019

Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories Annual Symposium

*Postindustrial imaginaries: beyond progress, memory and loss*

9:00-5:30, Wednesday 27 March 2019, Room 309, Edward Street, University of Brighton.

The postindustrial is tethered to powerful cultural imaginaries. From “smokestack nostalgia” and its elegies to Fordist labour and the certainties of modernity, to evocations of ruined landscapes and the toxic wastes of endtimes, the term does clear political-aesthetic work.

This symposium seeks to trouble and unsettle the idea of the postindustrial. Interdisciplinary in nature, it will involve a series of provocations by invited speakers. Presentations will consider the ways in which these spaces are imagined, temporalised and represented. The symposium will stimulate debate across the humanities and social sciences, bringing together scholars from literature, history, cultural geography, environmental humanities, archaeology, heritage policy, anthropology and sociology to engage with these debates.

*Keynote speakers:*

*Professor Tim Strangleman (University of Kent)*

*Professor Valerie Walkerdine (Cardiff University)*
