DePOT’s Fall 2021 Roundtable Series: Rethinking Deindustrialization Studies

This roundtable series invites us to revisit our understanding of the field of deindustrialization studies. Two sessions expand the geographic imaginary from the old industrial heartlands of Western Europe and North America. Another asks us to make gender analysis more central.  The final session brings curatorial and archival knowledge into the conversation. 

Friday October 15 10:00am-12:00pm (EST) 

Co-organized with the Global Development Institute and Manchester Urban Institute initiative.
