The Price of Progress: Narrating the Fall of Industrial Cities

Referentin: Dr. Julia Sattler | Moderation: Prof. Dr. Martin Zimmermann (LMU)

What is often neutrally termed "de-industrialization" has considerable consequences for cities, regions, and their inhabitants across the Western hemisphere. In the face of the ongoing radical urban and economic transformations affecting former centers of production from Belfast to Bochum to Detroit, the question of how to create sustainable and socially just cities has gained momentum. This question concerns processes of urban identity creation and the development of conceptions for a city’s envisioned future(s) after the industry, as well as ideas for how to preserve the memory of the past for the postindustrial age.
