OpenCampus Culture Cafe - ‘Hull: Culture, History, Place’
Speaker: Dr Jo Byrne, Research Manager, Culture, Place and Policy Institute (CPPI), University of Hull.
In the later twentieth century Hull’s maritime industries faced modernisation, transition and at times crisis, heralding change within the city’s dockside communities. Oral histories reveal stories of disruption, adaptation and resilience by those whose lives were tied to the fortunes and practices of Hull’s extensive waterfront. Beginning in the years following the second world war and concluding with the struggle for remembrance in the present day, eye witnesses narrate the journey as a distinctive way of living became an aspect of maritime heritage.
