REBEL CROSSINGS: WILLIAM MORRIS AND SOCIALISM IN BRISTOL AND MANCHESTER
Sat 28 October 2017, 14:15 – 15:30 BST
For the Society's 2017 Kelmscott Lecture, internationally renowned historian of feminism and radical social movements Sheila Rowbotham will draw on her latest book 'Rebel Crossings: New Women, Free Lovers and Radicals in Britain and the United States'. The story of six radical pioneers at the turn of the twentieth century, Rebel Crossings relates the interweaving lives of four women and two men as they journey from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, from Britain to America, and from Old World conventions towards New World utopias. The lecture will explore the influence of William Morris on the thinking and politics of these six pioneers.
