"An invitation to a Political Education Together 

Zoom 21st January, 2pm - 3.30pm 

At our last meeting in September we looked at how to build the movement.

Some notes from that meeting will follow.

 

"In this new era, political education is even more important than before.  What is the role of the political educator?"

What is our theory of change?"

 

The working class and progressive movements in this country are on their uppers. The Electoral defeat of the Labour Party in December 2019, the nature of the new Labour leadership, the long term transformation of the economy and society, worsened by the C19 Pandemic, provide new opportunities for capital to strengthen it's position.

 

But how can we fight back? Crucially, what role do political educators have in this?

Raphael Samuel and the History Workshop

Ian Gwinn has recently published a paper about Raphael Samuel and the founding of the History Workshop

History should become common property

 

Raphael Samuel was a founding member of History Workshop–both the Journal and the workshops that were instrumental in the Journal’s foundation.  Long before it was a journal, History Workshop was a popular movement for the democratisation of History which flourished in Britain from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s (with sporadic activity continuing into the 1990s). It emerged from Ruskin College Oxford where Raphael Samuel, the movement’s initiator and presiding spirit, taught history for many decades. While the themes explored varied widely, the events were primarily a showcase for history seen from a non-elite perspective, ‘people’s history’ as it was labelled.In the early years this meant primarily working-class history but over time, after some controversy, it expanded to include the new women’s history. Seen as a radical, left response to a ‘turbulent society’, these Workshops were a seedbed for many new histories and historiographies. At its height, these workshops saw as many as seven hundred attendees.
