Mining the Meaning
Featured research: Dr Katy Shaw Mining the Meaning: Cultural Representations of the 1984-5 UK Miners' Strike

Focusing closely on the politics of form, Katy Shaw's monograph interrogates the significance of the mode, means and function of strikers’ writings, as well as the alternative representations of the conflict propounded by established writers, musicians, artists and film-makers in the wake of the coal dispute.
