EP Thompson 100th birth anniversary event, Halifax 3rd February

E.P. Thompson lived with his wife Dorothy in Halifax for 17 years between 1948 - 1965. A commemorative Blue Plaque was put up on their home at Holly Bank, Siddal, in 2013. To celebrate what would have been Thompson's 100th birthday, Calderdale TUC (with support from the Society for the Study of Labour History, Yorkshire CND and the Independent Working Class Education Network) are holding a day-long conference on Saturday 3rd February 2024 to discuss and reflect on E.P. Thompson's intellectual and political legacies, as well as the ongoing relevance of Thompson's approaches to history and politics for the world of today. Join us to hear from Matthew Roberts, Sheila Rowbotham, Julian Harber, Gawain Little, Colin Waugh, Kate Hudson, Katrina Navickas and others.
