E.P. Thompson & 'The Making of "The Making of the English Working Class".'

The 4th Northern Radical History Network meeting to be held on Saturday 20 April 2013, in Bradford at the The Equity Centre, 1 Longlands Street, 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 the focus of our meeting.

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 was Helen Cam Visiting Fellow in History at Girton College, Cambridge, for 2006- 07.

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".'

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