My Session Status

Regular session
11:00 AM, miércoles 31 ago 2022 (1 hour 30 minutos)
Lunch   12:30 PM to 01:30 PM (1 hour)

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.

The rural landscape of Belgium abounds with ancient monasteries not far from which you can perceive, occasionally hidden under the vegetation, sometimes the silhouette of a smokestack, other times the shape of a saw-tooth roof. These remains are witnesses of the industrial fate that many rural monastic sites knew from the 19th century onwards. Sold as Biens Nationaux, as a consequence of the French Revolution (1796-1813), they took part in the early industrialization of Wallonia, second indus...
