Manchester served as inspiration for some of Engel’s writings on child labour, unsanitary conditions and working class life in the 19th century. So, almost two centuries on, tonight the Urbis Research Forum will examine how the city is reflected in Engel’s work and how his Mancunian insights continue to be relevant in the 21st century.
This month's contributors are: Dr. Leif Jerram (History, University of Manchester), Steve Hanson (Cultural Studies, Hereford College of Arts) and Mark Rainey (Urbis Research Forum).
Time: Monday, 29 November, 6.00 pm
Place: D07, Renold Building, off Sackville Street, Manchester
Free, No Booking Required.
