Industrial landscape: a resilient palimpsest of memory I

My Session Status

Regular session
9:00 AM, Wednesday 31 Aug 2022 (1 hour 30 minutes)
Break   10:30 AM to 11:00 AM (30 minutes)

This session brings together a set of studies focused on the uses adaptative reuses (and even replications) of industrial heritage in the larger context of its urban and social landscapes. Urban industrial memory, its social and territorial impacts, as well as its conservation and promotion, will be discussed from a variety of case studies ranging from Central and Southern Europe to Turkey, China and North America. The interdisciplinary approaches underlying each of the studies will also be discussed, from the methodology of the archaeology of industrialization to new interpretive perspectives based, for example, on documentary archaeology or the geographic information systems.

After the founding of P.R.C., a huge number of factories were constructed one after another. It is time to think about how to transfer their roles in the process of urbanization since these factories have made great contributions to industrialization and lost the original functions. As the precious industrial memory of that generation and the mark of urban civilization, the destiny of these old industrial sites is increasingly valued by the people. The object of this research is such a factor...

Names have power––and how we name our industrial heritage matters. The words we use to describe what remains both explain what we feel about them, but also telescope what others ought to feel about them (thus we could also speak of ‘naming’ and ‘norming’ in our title). Indeed, for the name to mean something/anything requires social participation (as Edouard Morot-Sir called it, “onomastic participation”). We know from the study of onomastics that place names have historically changed over tim...
