  • Digging the Seam: Popular Cultures of the 1984/5 Miners Strike By Ian W MacDonald Simon Popple The 19845 Miners Strike was one of the most important political events in British history It was a bitter dispute that polarised public opinion, divided nation and families alike, and the results in terms of the destruction of centuries of industrial and cultural tradition are still keenly felt.The social and political consequences of this dispute, which have resonated foThe 19845 Miners Strike was one of the most important political events in British history It was a bitter dispute that polarised public opinion, divided nation and families alike, and the results in terms of the destruction of centuries of industrial and cultural tradition are still keenly felt.The social and political consequences of this dispute, which have resonated for the past quarter century, have been subject to detailed analysis and reflection The consequences for the arts and popular culture are less clearly mapped This book attempts to begin to redress this imbalance and signal the importance of popular cultural activity both during and after the strike.The essays that appear in this book represent diverse and multidisciplinary responses to the questions raised by the strike and its relationships to a broad range of cultural forms which include literature, film, photography, music, theatre, television drama and documentary, painting, public art and heritage interventions.These responses are organised around four themes that map the interrelatedness between cultural representation, cultural intervention and historical memory The first deals with the idea of mining culture and pre strike representations in popular sentiment, film and literature The second examines the role cultural forms played directly in the context of the strike, as a means of political commentary, activism and fund raising The third looks at subsequent cultural renderings or reconstructions of the strike and the final section looks at the current process of memorialisation and commemoration.The book draws together a range of voices from academia, heritage, cultural and mining backgrounds, and offers both a historical perspective on the range of cultural activities in the course of the dispute and subsequent readings and re readings It aims both to provide a record of cultural intervention and stimulate new dialogues and perspectives.
