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 20th century. It is still in print 50 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, the former union leader Rodney Bickerstaffe, and Professor Adrian Randall from the University of Birmingham.
Suitable for adults.
