CfP: The Making of the English Working Class

Conference on The Making of the English Working Class

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of E.P. Thompson’s Making of the English Working Class, the Political Studies Association Communism group will be sponsoring a day conference in mid-to-late June 2013, to be held at Queen Mary’s College, University of London and co-convened with the PSA Labour Movements group. Offers of contributions are invited addressing one or more of the following themes: the Making and its reception in historical context; the impact of the text in diverse fields; developments of/ challenges to key themes of the book; contemporary relevance. Contributions that link reflection on Thompson’s contribution to contemporary political movements will be particularly welcome. Proposals (by the end of October please) should be sent to m.j.davis@qmul.ac.uk.

Edited to add: See also this forthcoming event on 13 April 2013 at the People's History Museum in Manchester.

  1. As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
