What does radical history look like in a digital era? For the past fifteen years, History Workshop has been trailblazing in historians’ use of the digital to make production and communication of history a radically democratic activity.

Join us on Wednesday 14th June from 6-8, at Birkbeck’s Clore Centre, to celebrate thirteen years of the History Workshop website as a platform to write, read, listen to and discuss radical history and its place in the world today.

A roundtable of History Workshop editors will discuss the practice and politics of public history, how creative methods of communication can platform a wider range of voices and methods, and why bringing the past into dialogue with the present is more urgent than ever.

Chair: Marybeth Hamilton, coordinating editor at History Workshop

Julia Laite, Professor of History, Birkbeck
Hannah Elias, Lecturer in Black British History, Goldsmiths
Elly Robson, managing editor at History Workshop
Rosa Campbell, editorial fellow at History Workshop
Sorcha Thompson, editorial fellow at History Workshop

All welcome. Booking essential.
