From the Northern Radical History Network:

 We are pleased to announce the next Northern Radical History Network meeting will take place on Saturday 20 April 2013 in Bradford. This year marks 50 years since the publication of E. P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class, and the book, its author and the book's impact and legacy will be our meeting's topic of discussion. We are delighted to be joined by David Goodway a social and cultural historian who has become increasingly known as an authority on anarchism.

Between 1969 and 2005, David worked in Continuing Education at the University of Leeds, and he as Helen Cam Visiting Fellow in History at Girton College, Cambridge, for 2006-7. His publications include London Chartism, 1838-1848 (1982), Talking Anarchy (with Colin Ward) (2003) and Anarchist Seeds beneath the Snow: Left-Libertarian Thought and British Writers from William Morris to Colin Ward (2006). David will present a paper entitled The Making of 'The Making of the English Working Class' (further details to follow)

 The meeting will take place at The Equity Centre, 1 Longlands Street, Bradford, on Saturday 20 April 2013 from 11am - 3pm. ALL WELCOME. Hope to see you there!
