Event description
We will be combing through our rich collections to reflect on the memory of Peterloo and what it means today.

About this Event

Professor Mary Davis, historian and Secretary of the Marx Memorial Library in the chair.

Meirian Jump, Archivist & Library Manager, on the Marx Memorial Library's collection and the launch of our Peterloo ceramic collection online.

Dr Joe Cozens on the memory of Peterloo. Dr Cozens is a social historian of modern Britain. He has a research interest in social protest movements and public order in Britain during and after the Napoleonic Wars. His recent published work examines the popular memory of the Peterloo Massacre from 1819 to the present day.

We will be combing through our rich collections to reflect on the memory of Peterloo and what it means today. Cozens will explore how Peterloo has been remembered by the labour movement over the past two hundred years and, specifically, how its spectre has been raised in the cause of later campaigns, including those for women’s suffrage. This will also be an opportunity to view a display of contemporary documents and artefacts in a special exhibition.
