(University of Calcutta’s History Department)

The Working Lives Research Institute is hosting the visit of Dr Ritwika Biswas of the University of Calcutta’s History Department while she is on a visit to original archive research supported by a Charles Wallace Fellowship for her work on the interaction between the British and Indian Communist Parties, 1920-60. Professor Mary Davis of WLRI is acting as Dr Biswas’s academic host.

BASA’s interest lies in the inter-action between the two Parties, which will form a major theme of discussion after Dr Biswas’s talk.

    Congratulations on setting up the Socialist History Blog – long overdue. Just a couple of small points. The London Socialist Historians Group has set up a blog at http://www.londonsocialisthistorians.blogspot.com – if you could add a link at some point that would be grand. Also could you add maybe a contact email address for the Socialist History Blog so that people could contact you easily with notices about events etc etc. Thanks and keep up the good work.
