Dear STICK Friends,
STICK will attempt to send out entertaining and informative items on various subjects of interest to our network. We will also be using social media such as Twitter to keep in touch.
Today, a couple of an industrial archaeology/ heritage themes which, unfortunately, clash.
Firstly, an online event on the UNESCO Welsh Slate Mining nomination entitled The square mile and the heritage of humankind (Wednesday, 16th December 2020, 7pm GMT). This talk covers the role of community involvement in the inscription of a site into the World Heritage List. Tickets are available here.
Also, an international, textile and chocolatey item from our friends in Society for Industrial Archaeology based in Michigan, USA (Wednesday, 16th December 2020, 7pm GMT). Further information here.
Francisco Montoya Mar and Angélica María Medrano Enríquez - "La Esperanza candy and chocolate factory. Zacatecas, Mexico" (Francisco Montoya Mar's presentation is based on his book Arqueología en la fábrica de dulces La Esperanza (Archeology at the La Esperanza candy factory)).
Kevin Coffee – "Industrial Lowell and the dawn of the Anthropocene"
Note: "If you are not a current member of the SIA, but would like to attend an upcoming session, contact SIA headquarters (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the link. Each session is open to the first 100 participants who join the session."
