Abstract:
This is an ethnographic study that explores notions of identity and meaning at two museums of industrial heritage in Canada (Cape Breton Miners’ Museum) and South Wales (the Big Pit National Mining Museum of Wales). This thesis seeks to unpack how identity is constructed and meaning is made from representations of the industrial past.
