Brooke Batterson

Graduate Student, Industrial Heritage & Archaeology
Michigan Technological University
Participates in 1 Session

My name is Brooke Batterson and I am a first year masters student in the Industrial Heritage & Archaeology program at Michigan Technological University. My current research interests integrate historic architecture, Francophone migration, and social mobility, and labor history in the Keweenaw Peninsula. I have spent the last two years researching for the Francophone Migration Project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). My interest in labor history is supported by time spent cataloging artifacts in the archaeology lab on campus and participating in Michigan Tech’s summer 2021 archaeological field school. My experience with historic architecture, funded by the Vernacular Architecture Forum, includes documenting historic structures and modeling these structures, and conducting ethnographic and archival research.

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-...
