Lecture at Swansea University on Tuesday 22 November
As part of Swansea University's Interdisciplinary Research Week, Professor Huw Bowen, Department of History and Classics, will give a lecture on 'Bridging Gaps, Changing Landscapes: The Future of the Lower Swansea Valley's Industrial Past'. This lecture will explore 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 fifty 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. For further information on the project, please visit the project website.
The lecture will be held on Tuesday 22 November at 6 pm in the Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University. If you would like to attend, please click here to book. All welcome.
