Tristram Hunt, historian and former MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central
Professor Peter Ackers
Dr Alastair Reid
Professor Peter Ackers and Dr Alastair Reid introduce their edited collection of essays challenging traditional narratives of twentieth century British labour history. The collection explores neglected aspects of working class experience and political awareness over the twentieth century - including religious Nonconformity, self-organisation and left libertarianism - and shows how this diversity has been quashed by a narrative focussing on trade unions, nationalisation, class cohesion and secular state-socialism.
Tristram Hunt, historian and former Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent Central and the editors will provide commentary over drinks.
