50 YEARS OF E.P. THOMPSON’S ‘THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH WORKING CLASS’ – DAY CONFERENCE

http://www.phm.org.uk/whatson/the-making-of-the-english-working-class/

A day conference organised by the People’s History Museum and the Working Class Movement Library

13 April 2013

Time 10:00 – 16:00

Duration 6 hours

Edward Thompson’s The Making of the English Working Class appeared in 1963 and has become one of the most influential history texts of the twentieth century.  It is still in print fifty years on, having survived challenges from Marxist, feminist and postmodern historians.  This day conference celebrates Thompson’s classic, and considers its reception, its critics, and why it endures.

Speakers will include the broadcaster Stuart Maconie and Professor Adrian Randall from University of Birmingham.

The conference will also include displays from the Working Class Movement Library and the Labour History Archive and Study Centre at the People’s History Museum.
