About the Show
The DéPOT partnership examines the historical roots of deindustrialization and the contemporary responses to it. The goal is to understand deindustrialization in transnational or comparative perspective, its causes, the responses to it, its effects, and its legacies. The partnership joins 25 leading specialists in the study of deindustrialization as well as 18 research centres and 16 industrial museums, heritage groups, trade unions, labour archives, Indigenous organizations, and publishers. The focus is on the transnational connections between and comparisons among the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom – the heart of the old “industrial world.” The DéPOT podcast serves as a place for deindustrialization-related conversations about research, methodology, and publications, primarily with graduate student and post doctoral affiliates and co-investigators.
