Event summary: Through his lecture, Professor Huw Bowen explores the ways in which multi-disciplinary research has shaped the regeneration of the Lower Swansea Valley, the home of Swansea's once world-leading copper industry.
It examines the development and legacy of the Lower Swansea Valley project established 50 years ago; and it considers the new lines of enquiry pursued by the ESRC-funded project, 'History, heritage, and urban regeneration: the local and global worlds of Welsh copper'.
Finally, it looks at how academic research is defining Cu @ Swansea, a major urban regeneration project being developed by Swansea University and the City and County of Swansea. Visit http://www.welshcopper.org.uk/en/ for more information about the project.
