CFP: HISTORICAL CULTURES OF LABOUR UNDER CONDITIONS OF
DEINDUSTRIALISATION 

WORKSHOP AS PART OF THE EUROPEAN LABOUR HISTORY
NETWORK CONFERENCE, TURIN 15-16 DECEMBER 2015

This group discusses historical cultures (“Geschichtskulturen”) of
labour under conditions of deindustrialisation and postindustrial
conditions. How has the historical consciousness of (former) cultures of
labour been constructed and articulated in the private, public (counter
public) and official spheres? In which ways have changes of labour
relations, deregulation and trade unions, the effects on the labour
movement and changes of working class identity in deindustrialising and
postindustrial regions been memorised? This group looks at the symbolic
repertoire of historical cultures of labour and seeks to explore the
ways in which the memory of the industrial age is being performed.

We are calling for papers on themes such as industrial heritage, museums
and exhibitions, monuments, arts and theatre performences, literature
and historiography, including oral history. Please forward your paper
proposal (approx. 200 words) including a brief biographical statement to
Christian Wicke (Institute for Social Movements, Ruhr University
Bochum): christian.wicke@rub.de
