The V International Seminar of TICCIH México, which focuses on the study of the heritage legacy of Communications, Transportation and Related Industries, aims to contribute to the experiences exchange on knowledge, management, recognition, media presence, safeguarding, restoration and reuse of the vast tangible and intangible heritage generated by those systems. Among them, we can emphasize the universes of railroad, telegraph, telephone, ports or any other mobility means linked to agroindustry, mining, steel industry, textiles or any other industrial activity, as well as the role of the communities that created those assets or the communities that are responsible of their preservation. Transportation systems have left a range of remains since pre-Hispanic times up to the 20th century, both in land and water depending on the characteristics of each region which is part of the current Mexican territory. Road networks configured regions and, later on, the railroad reshaped the territory, this originated different human settlements production and commerce centers, or they simply encouraged the growth and development of already existing centers. In most cases, they followed their own settlement patterns that, together with materials, construction systems, techniques and architectonical styles, provided them a particular identity that can be rescued to be analyzed. Starting from a common practice, the installation of these transportation means gave rise to several technological, territorial, construction and organizational innovations that allowed their adjustment to the specific human, material and economic resources of each location site, as well as to their geographic and climate characteristics. Traces, knowledge and testimonies generated by all these activities, are part of the great Mexican industrial heritage and their study is the main purpose of this seminar. The tangible traces of this vast industrial heritage which are located near or inside urban contexts have been constantly and systematically looted, their big spaces have been threatened by land use changes, real estate speculation and abandonment, taking advantage of their obsolesce or the contamination they generate as an excuse to destroy them. A first step to their study safeguard and conservation is, without doubt, documenting, producing an inventory and cataloguing the material assets and documents (manuscripts; printed, graphic, sound and audiovisual materials; private archives) and testimonies that preserve their intangible value. In accordance with the above paragraph, the V Seminar of TICCIH México, strives to contribute to such task by calling specialists and the interested general public to participate presenting papers related to the following thematic axes: 1) Connecting a nation 2) Heritage legacy 3) Sources for the knowledge of transportation systems Guide to propose papers 1.- Title indicating activity, place and time Vg.
