'Literature and industrial society' 2020

This cycle presents novels on science, technology and industrial society

The National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia (mNACTEC) is organising the fourth edition of the series of book presentations Literature and industrial society, focusing on science, technology and industrial society. This activity aims to promote recent literary works which portray or are set in contexts of social change resulting from industrialisation processes in Catalonia, as well as further exploring the more technical side of these historical and social changes. The industrial sectors examined in the cycle are the textile industry, the construction of the Núria rack railway, and the birth of hiking in Catalonia.
