Saint-Étienne was the crucible for change that pushed France into modernity between 1780 and 1850, so it could help to define major concepts that still govern processes on a global scale today: the use of carbonized natural resources, the birth of capitalism, the emergence of the proletariat, the opening of markets, States’ hesitations between regulation and liberalism, the importance of machines and more…
All these concepts are now being challenged by the Anthropocene crisis. Taking a deep dive into the history of France’s First Industrial Revolution is one way to re-examine the world we live in.
