Marion Fontaine is a lecturer in contemporary history at the University of Avignon and a researcher at the Centre Norbert Elias. Her early work focused on the relationship between sport and the construction of working-class identity (Le Racing Club de Lens et les gueules noires, 2010). Her work now focuses on deindustrialisation and the crisis of working-class worlds, particularly with regard to coal miners in France and Europe (Fin d’un monde ouvrier. Liévin 74, 2014; “La désindustrialisation, une histoire en cours”, special issue 20 & 21, 2019).
