Deindustrialization and its Aftermath is being organized jointly by Concordia University’s Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling and the Scottish Oral History Centre at Strathclyde University in Glasgow.
The conference will bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines as well as artists, musicians, poets, digital practitioners, film-makers, community-based projects, and others who are engaging with deindustrialization, its aftermath, and working-class resistance. We therefore encourage the submission of individual papers, session proposals, workshops, film screenings, performances, art installations, poetry readings, place-based activities, poster presentations, and other non-traditional formats. An edited collection and a special issue of a journal are planned.
Proposals should be 250-300 words and accompanied with a short CV. You should submit your proposal by August 15, 2013 to the attention of Steven High.
Steven High, Co-Director of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, Concordia University.
