Fundamentally, deindustrialization is a process of physical and social ruination as well as part of a wider political project that leaves working-class communities impoverished and demoralized. This workshop will examine the concept of ruination in different national contexts, what it offers deindustrialization studies, and other intersecting concepts that are used in its place.
Note that the recording does not include the discussion and question period at the end.
