Talk and roundtable discussion: British Socialism and the Soviet Union

Join us as we continue this term’s discussion of British socialism’s response to the Soviet Union with a guest lecture and a roundtable conversation. We’re delighted to welcome Professor Kevin Morgan (University of Manchester), author of Bolshevism and the British Left (2006-2013) and studies of Harry Pollitt (1993), Ramsay MacDonald (2006), and A A Purcell (2013), and an editor of Twentieth Century Communism: A Journal of International History. Kevin’s talk will be followed by a roundtable conversation about researching British socialism through early twentieth-century periodicals and newspapers and the prospects for future digitisation.
