On June 28-29, 2018, the project will organize the workshop Shipyards as transforming workplaces: methods of grasping shop-floor experiences from below which will take place at the City Museum in Gdynia. Although our project carries “from below” in its name, the term challenges us again and again. In this workshop, we want to pose the question if engineers and directors have their own “from-below” perspective and how our research can explore technology changes, the spatiality of the shipyard and the dissolution of the milieu.
On the first day, the human geographer David Jordhus-Lier holds the keynote speech. Visitors are welcome.
