Laborem Ex Machina podcast series

The Laborem Ex Machina podcast series explores the fascinating technological, business, labour, military, cultural, gender, racial, children and youth, and environmental history of modern construction machines and their operating engineers in Canada in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This 8-episode series has a digital companion with photos, artwork, videos, interactive maps, infographics, historical records, and other illustrations meant to be browsed through while listening.

This project was sponsored by the International Union of Operating Engineers’ Local 793 in partnership with the Global Labour Research Centre and Department of History at York University.

Hope you enjoy it.
