The CSSG was formed at a conference at the National Coal Mining Museum for England on 7-8 December 2017 and brings together historians, social scientists, curators, and former miners and steelworkers. While we are diverse in background, outlook and approaches, we share a common interest in studying the history, and preserving the heritage, of the British coal and steel industries, the people working in those industries, the communities in which they lived and their interactions with wider society.
1) to provide an academic forum for the presentation and discussion of new and ongoing work on aspects of the coal and steel industries in twentieth-century Britain;
2) to serve as a network of mutual exchange and support;
3) to act as a pressure group for the preservation of the industrial heritage of the coal and steel industries.
We organise regular conferences, further the publication of academic work and intervene in public debate on the historical significance of Britain’s coal and steel industries. The group is open to anyone who shares our interest in the history and heritage of the coal and steel industries. We welcome inquiries from the public and suggestions for further events.
