‘Manufacturing Ghosts’: Visiting the Ruins of our Industrial Past

 

Abstract        

This article outlines the increasing dereliction of the (Western) industrial landscape and, as a result, how industrial ruins convey broader socio-political messages. As industrial ruins become 'attractive' within the visitor economy and popular for 'urban exploration', industrial ruins narrate memories from the past and suggest complex intersections of how things were and how things have become.
