Making histories in transport museums by Colin Divall ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is the first for over thirty years to take transport museums seriously as vehicles for the making of public histories. Drawing upon many years' experience of visiting and working in transport museums around the world, the authors argue that the sector's historical roots are more complex than is usually thought. In recent years, efforts to attract new and wider audiences have concentrated on exhibiting social histories of transport and travel. While rarely perfect, these displays have the potential to encourage visitors to reflect critically on the opportunities and challenges presented by transport in the past, present and future
Scaling up : the Institution of Chemical Engineers and the rise of a new profession by Colin Divall ( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chemical engineering - as a recognised skill in the workplace, as an academic discipline, and as an acknowledged profession - is scarcely a century old. Yet from a contested existence before the First World War, chemical engineering had become one of the 'big four' engineering professions in Britain, and a major contributor to Western economies, by the end of the twentieth century. The subject had distinct national trajectories. In Britain - too long seen as shaped by American experiences - the emergence of recognised chemical engineers was the result of professional aspirations and contingency, and shaped by a shifting ecology of institutions, firms and government. Drawing upon extensive archival research, this book examines the evolution of technical practice, working environment and social interactions of chemical engineering. It will be of considerable interest to historians, sociologists of the professions, and to practitioners themselves
