Pennsylvania in Public Memory: Reclaiming the Industrial Past, a talk by author Dr. Carolyn Kitch.
“This is a fascinating book that will make a major original contribution to the overlapping fields of public history, deindustrialization, and tourism studies.” —Steven High, Concordia University, author of Industrial Sunset
What stories do we tell about America’s once-great industries at a time when they are fading from the landscape? Pennsylvania in Public Memory attempts to answer that question, exploring the emergence of a heritage culture of industry and its loss through the lens of its most representative industrial state. Based on news coverage, interviews, and more than two hundred heritage sites, this book traces the narrative themes that shape modern public memory of coal, steel, railroading, lumber, oil, and agriculture, and that collectively tell a story about national as well as local identity in a changing social and economic world.
This author series is underwritten by the Anne Hamilton Henszey Pyle and Kenneth B. Pyle Educational Fund for Regional Heritage Preservation.
