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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
