New Perspectives on Deindustrialization (Part 2)

The Deindustrialization & the Politics of Our Time (DePOT) project has organized a two-part Round-Table Series that invites recent authors of books and special issues on deindustrialization to speak to their major findings and what their overall intervention is to the field. The panelists include leading scholars across the humanities and social sciences in North America and Europe as well as museum and policy professionals. After everyone has presented, there will then be a Question & Answer period.
