50 years of E.P.Thompson’s ‘The Making of the English Working Class,’
13 April 2013
A day conference organised by the People’s History Museum and the Working Class Movement Library.
p. 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.
