New Monograph for Dr. Steven High: One Job Town

May 10, 2018

Dr. High, has just published a new monograph with the University of Toronto Press, entitled One Job Town: Work, Belonging, and Betrayal in Northern Ontario (Toronto: UTP, 2018). 

This is a detailed study of deindustrialization in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, a book which (to cite the publisher's website) "takes us into the making of a culture of industrialism and the significance of industrial work for mill-working families. One Job Town approaches deindustrialization as a long term, economic, political, and cultural process, which did not begin and simply end with the closure of the local mill in 2002. High examines the work-life histories of fifty paper mill workers and managers, as well as city officials, to gain an in-depth understanding of the impact of the formation and dissolution of a culture of industrialism."
