ERIH Annual Conference 26 to 29 October 2016 | Porto, Portugal "European Industrial Heritage - How to tell the International Story?"

March 2016 /

First call for papers

From its beginnings, the Industrial Revolution was not just a local phenomenon, it was international – “Globalization” is not a new buzz word! The new technologies quickly spread across the world, particularly in Europe, and this marked a major turning point in history. Almost every aspect of daily life was affected in some way and as a result, there were strong similarities across countries and cultures in the methods of production and ways of life – we all dug the same coal…

Each Industrial Heritage site; every city; and each workers’ dwelling has an international dimension to its history and this provides a huge treasure trove of fascinating stories which can be presented in ways that appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Do we do this? Unfortunately not. Our presentations mainly focus solely on the local history and rarely touch on the wider, European story.
