My research seeks to address the relationship between industrial heritage and identity in post-industrial urban spaces in the UK. I’m engaging with critical investigations of constructions of heritage, familial narratives, and (post-)memory to understand the enduring relevance of industrial Britain to masculine identities. My methods will include familial interviews and walking interviews with participants.
