E.P. Thompson’s The Making of the English Working Class at Fifty: Introduction

E.P. Thompson’s The Making of the English Working Class at Fifty: Introduction presentation / présentation E.P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class at Fifty Introduction Bryan D. Palmer In this section we continue our discussion of E.P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class, initiated in our last issue of Labour/Le Travail. This dialogue helps to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of this unrivalled text, which is being commemorated in 2013 in a number of international conferences as well as in articles in most major social and working-class history journals in regions where Thompson's impact was decisive: the United Kingdom and Europe, and throughout the Americas. As in llt 71, we have asked a range of commentators to address Thompson's book, and the result is a broad-ranging assessment, in which The Making is subject to a diversity of "readings." Our interlocutors, like those in our last number, agree on much, but also develop their understandings of The Making differently, drawing on insights that come from different generational experiences, national contexts, conceptual frameworks, and disciplinary backgrounds. In addition to those who provide short essays on The Making we also provide brief personal statements from three historians who were, like so many others, profoundly influenced by Thompson. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Labour / Le Travail The Canadian Committee on Labour History

Abstract

presentation / présentation E.P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class at Fifty Introduction Bryan D. Palmer In this section we continue our discussion of E.P. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class, initiated in our last issue of Labour/Le Travail. This dialogue helps to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of this unrivalled text, which is being commemorated in 2013 in a number of international conferences as well as in articles in most major social and working-class history journals in regions where Thompson's impact was decisive: the United Kingdom and Europe, and throughout the Americas. As in llt 71, we have asked a range of commentators to address Thompson's book, and the result is a broad-ranging assessment, in which The Making is subject to a diversity of "readings." Our interlocutors, like those in our last number, agree on much, but also develop their understandings of The Making differently, drawing on insights that come from different generational experiences, national contexts, conceptual frameworks, and disciplinary backgrounds. In addition to those who provide short essays on The Making we also provide brief personal statements from three historians who were, like so many others, profoundly influenced by Thompson.
