Three weeks on…

Afternoon tea

It is now three weeks since the 14th Biennial Labour History Conference, “Fighting Against War: Peace Activism in the Twentieth Century,” commenced.

Radio station 3CR has begun its series of broadcasts reflecting on the conference generally and several  of the papers in particular. The first episode, which aired on 14 February, provided an overview with a specific focus on Marilyn Lake’s keynote address “Equality or Militarism: The Conflict of Founding Narratives”.

On 27 February 3CR broadcast a special segment focusing on Elizabeth Humphrys’ paper, “The Accord after Thirty Years: Corporatism in the Neoliberal Era”. You can listen to this on 3CR’s website, but it is not yet available for download.

We will add more podcasts to the website as they become available.

Liam Byrne has written a report on the conference, which we will publish in the forthcoming issue of Recorder, to be posted on 1st April. If this is too long a wait, you can read it on our website.
