Incendiary Words and Rebellious Campaigns: 1840-1890 and 1940-1990
A 6-week course, 6:30-8:30pm every Thursday 25 April - 30 May

As part of the HLF-funded Victorian Blogging project, Conway Hall will be running an interactive 6-part evening course focusing on London's radical and rebellious writers, pamphleteers, journalists and activists whose words challenged the status quo in several arenas between 1840-1890 - whether on women's rights, housing, workplace conditions, religious authority, militarism or other issues. And we will simultaneously examine the work and campaigning of their counterparts 100 years later between 1940-1990.

During the course we will use archive material from the Humanist Library and Archives and also make a visit to May Day Rooms, an evolving active archive of post-war radicalism in Britain.
