LRDG seminar: Cultural Articulations of the North: Carers Cruising Cumbria and Meals on The Mile. Sondra Cuban and Corinne Fowler, Lancaster University

Date: 11 December 2007 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

We examine two distinctive northwest representations --- Manchester (Rusholme Road where the story the Curry Mile takes place) and south central Cumbria. We examine technologies and how they mediate experiences---in this case, the second-hand cars that carers drive in Cumbria to visit the elderly in their homes and in Rusholme, the technology is curry that both third generation restaurant entrepreneurs and first generation migrant workers embrace. Both old cars and curry are products of late capitalism and colonization and connect to myriad other global and local signifiers, including literacies and languages.
