Explorations in the Preservation of Coal Mining Heritage Areas IV

Mon statut pour la session

Regular session
9:00 AM, Mardi 30 Août 2022 (1 heure 30 minutes)
Pause   10:30 AM à 11:00 AM (30 minutes)

The papers presented in this session  investigate the social and economic changes that were triggered by transformations within the energy market and de-industrialization processes from international and comparative perspectives. Against this background the session will discuss strategies and concepts of (re)-valuation in former mining areas. The industrial heritage will be reconsidered in a broader sense, i.e. in the context of the specific post-industrial landscape and new cultural tourism.

Most notably, these Arctic mining towns represent specific variations of ho...
