    It is May 2015, and I am returning for a second fieldwork stay in the small Indiana town where I conducted doctoral fieldwork from 1989 to 1991. I have been on the phone from Ireland with some people I used to know. A former coal miner has told me that I am arriving just in time for the local Workers’ Memorial Day event. We meet up in a completely transformed shopping mall, and I follow his motorbike in my car as we drive down a highway that did not exist back then towards the premises of the Central Labor Council of Southern Indiana.
