9781784994341: Hot Metal: Material Culture and Tangible Labour (Studies in Design & Material Culture)

The world of work is tightly entwined with the world of things. Hot metal illuminates connections between design, material culture and labour between the 1960s and the 1980s, when the traditional crafts of hot-metal typesetting and letterpress were finally made obsolete with the introduction of computerised technologies. This multidisciplinary history provides an evocative rendering of design culture by exploring an intriguing case: a doggedly traditional Government Printing Office in Australia. It explores the struggles experienced by printers as they engaged in technological retraining, shortly before facing factory closure. Topics explored include spatial memory within oral history, gender-labour tensions, the rise of neoliberalism and the secret making of objects 'on the side'. This book will appeal to researchers in design and social history, labour history, material culture and gender studies. It is an accessible, richly argued text that will benefit students seeking to learn about the nature and erosion of blue-collar work and the history of printing as a craft.

About the Author:


Jesse Adams Stein is Chancellor's Research Fellow in the School of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney

Review:


"This original and cross-disciplinary book brings together design, design history, oral history, labour history, gender and material culture studies. It sheds a powerful light on the transformation and loss of blue-collar work and the demise of printing as a craft." - U: Magazine, April 2017 Edition


"It's an ambitious work. .. Its findings are salutary." - Diane Kirkby, Recorder Issue 228 - March 2017


"Jesse Adams Stein combines meticulous and imaginative research with sophisticated analysis to produce a highly original, engaging and illuminating account of the final decades of an Australian state enterprise, the Government Printing Office (known as the Gov) in Sydney, Australia." - Labour History, Number 112, May 2017, Raelene Frances, Monash University


"This inventive book about new approaches to material culture and labour history is a remarkable intervention in the field of design history. It will, I am confident, incite future scholars to investigate the people, spaces and objects that define and complicate the world of work." - David Brody, Journal of Design History
