Morgane Moello

Director-curator of industrial museums
Réunion des Musées Métropolitains Rouen Normandie
Participates in 1 Session

Morgane MOËLLO is a historian of technology graduated from the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. From 2011, her research focus on industrialization of a coastal river in the Normandy region in France, between the 18th and 20th centuries. They concern evolution of the river valley through technical and environmental impact of textile production based on hydraulic energy. Using multidisciplinary methods, including history, sociology and archaeogeography, she conducts a collective study on reconversion of an aeronautical and automotive industrial wasteland, active during 20th century in this valley. In charge of collections in 2014, her missions focus on study, conservation and enhancement of scientific, technical and natural heritage safeguarded, collected and acquired by the Ecomusée Creusot Montceau since its creation in the early 1970s. In this context, she undertakes research applied to the concept of the first industrial eco-museum in France at the origin of a holistic, social and territorial vision of heritage. Graduated from the Institut National du Patrimoine in 2019, she took over the management of the ecomuseum as a curator before becoming director of the two industrial museums of the Metropole Rouen Normandie in 2021, within the Réunion des Musées Metropolitans. They are situated either side of Rouen and the Seine river's loop.On one hand they bring together to the south the Fabrique des savoirs, which is a local heritage center created in the cloth-making city of Elbeuf, within the former Blin & Blin textile factory.To the north, the Corderie Vallois is also one of the first industrial museums in France, similarly resulting from a significant conversion of textile factory. The industrial site unfolds like a living heritage ecosystem. Its productive function has been preserved for heritage purposes as well as its source of hydraulic energy.

Si la vallée du canal de Lachine a été le berceau de l’industrialisation canadienne, la géographie industrielle métropolitaine ne s’y est pas confinée, peu s’en faut, Outre les grandes concentrations d’entreprises des quartiers centraux, elle est constituée des réseaux infrastructuraux, d’une douzaine de centrales hydroélectriques et des ensembles manufacturiers disséminés dans une quinzaine de petites villes aujourd’hui intégrées dans l’aire métropolitaine. La conférence proposera un surv...

In this lecture, I would like to talk about deindustrialised communities, heritage and memory in the context of right-wing populism. Drawing on studies of memory and heritage, I argue that right-wing populists have cornered the market on talking about the past of deindustrialised communities. They have successfully misrepresented this rich and complex history to fuel rage, resentment, fear and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, ‘the past’, and in particular the industr...

From its construction to its restoration, immerse yourself in the now and then of this key Canadian industrial heritage site. A country’s central maritime route, a major inland port, the Canadian Lowell (using hydraulic power), the cradle of industrialization, Smokey Valley (using steam), a manufacturing hotspot, the Lachine Canal is all of this and more. For it is also a national historic site, for which

The use of industrial heritage is a profoundly important factor in the process of creating a sustainable economic, social, and political future for many communities occupying industrial heritage landscapes. More than ever we recognize the need for such communities to be capable of shaping and expressing their heritage in different forms in the context of current events and issues, and in doing so to inform both contemporary decision-making as well as the way their industrial heritage is re...

This lecture will argue that the landscapes of industrial heritage that can be found in different parts of the world are directly related to the place-specific trajectories of deindustrialization. In other words: the different ways in which deindustrialization impacts on local communities has a direct bearing on the emergence of forms of industrial heritage. I will differentialte between deindustrialization paths and related industrial heritage regimes in a) Anglo-...
