The Socialist History Society are hosting an event at the Bishopsgate Institute in London, October 1st, 7pm.
The evening aims to provide a serious assessment of the enduring contribution of Eric Hobsbawm to the study and understanding of modern history. It will address some of the major aspects of his large and varied body of works in particular labour history, “history from below”, the study of popular movements in Europe, Latin America and elsewhere, nationalism, socialism and imperialism.
Speakers include Professor Malcolm Chase (University of Leeds) and Pluto author Professor Willie Thompson (Ideologies in the Age of Extremes: Liberalism, Conservatism, Communism, Fascism 1914-1991, Pluto, 2010). The event will be chaired by Professor David Parker (University of Leeds).
