Materializing Sheffield: Place, Culture, Identity

Materializing Sheffield has now gone live as a public website and can be 
seen at:- http://www.hrionline.ac.uk/matshef/

How has Sheffield's cityscape been formed and what bearing does it have 
upon the ways in which the city is seen and experienced by those who live 
there or those who visit?

Which of the city's histories have been crystallised into material form - 
as buildings, museum objects, art works, or personal possessions - and 
which have not? 

The aim of Materializing Sheffield is to explore Sheffield's identity in 
relation to its material culture and physical presence. Materializing 
Sheffield explores the interrelationship between materiality and memory by 
looking at the ways in which histories and identities are variously 
remembered and forgotten, and the extent to which they can be retrieved 
through exploration of material remains. It also addresses the ways in 
which Sheffield's material culture and cityscape are variously perceived 
and experienced by different social groups, and how this in turn may 
affect their identities and senses of belonging. Importantly, 
Materializing Sheffield also looks at how the city's material culture 
might be re-presented and re-shaped in the future.
