Charting change in Europe’s former industrial cities
Across Europe, cities have been struggling to address the loss of industrial jobs. This deindustrialisation is characterised by a decrease in the relative size and importance of the industrial sector in an economy. The dramatic fall in employment in manufacturing has impacted urban development. The EU-funded MPP project will explore how the pressure of deindustrialisation between the 1960s and 1990s changed daily practices in European cities. The project will use a geographic information system to map the changes. It will develop methodologies to further expand research in the field of digital special humanities into the realm of qualitative data and ‘deep mapping’.
