  • Radicalism and Popular Protest in Britain 1790-1820

    9 June 2017

    Radicalism and Popular Protest in Britain 1790-1820

    Described by E.P. Thomson as ‘one of the first attempts in history to mount a wholly proletarian insurrection, without middle class support’, the Pentrich Uprising of June 1817 happened nearly 200 years to the date of this conference.
    This conference, sponsored by SSLH, will consider popular protest and radical reform movements during the outbreak of social and political unrest; the tumultuous years of war, famine and unrest between 1790 and 1820 and how this became central to debates about the history of modern Britain. We will examine how several revolutions have changed our understanding of this period.
