Event description
This is the second of three workshops to be held as part of the After the Factory Network, funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. The network promotes research and knowledge exchange exploring the gendered implications of deindustrialisation in a European perspective. 
The workshop is organised in partnership between the University of Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire Council. The programme will include updates on the knowledge exchange projects sponsored by the network, and opportunities to engage with Clydebank’s industrial heritage, notably the Singer Sewing Machine Collection and Singer Archive, a Recognised Collection of National Significance. It will also include a selection of papers on various aspects of gender and deindustrialization in the UK, France, Spain and Italy.
Speakers include:
James Dougan, ‘Memories and Experiences of Industrial Closure in Clydebank – The Singer Sewing Machine Factory’
Amandine Tabutaud, ‘Female workers struggling with deindustrialization in Seine-Saint-Denis and Haute Vienne (1970-1980)’
Caroline Ibos and Fanny Gallot, ‘The « Samsonites’ Struggle »: Collective and Intimate Resistance at the Crossroads of Trial and Drama’
Pete Hodson, ‘Deindustrialisation, gender and memory in the East Durham coalfield’
Eloisa Betti, ‘Bologna metalmeccanic@ between deindustrialization and memory: the Casaralta case
Rhianne Morgan, ‘Addressing the silences: putting the memory of gender, identity and class into the story of the Victorian Templemore Baths in inner-city Belfast.’
A final programme with confirmed timings will be circulated shortly.
