Description

The People's Voice: Scottish Political Poetry, Song and the Franchise, 1832–1918

This free conference marks the launch of the People's Voice website, funded by the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland and created by staff at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde. This is a free online resource essential for anyone interested in the popular political culture of Scotland in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The details of over a thousand poems, online song recordings and essays and schools resources will be launched at the conference. Two years of work relating to the poetry and song of local communities across Scotland have unearthed a wide range of materials that speak of protest, citizenship and rights, and today we celebrate the launch of these resources with a conference boasting international speakers and musical entertainment! Come along!

Speakers include: Florence Boos (University of Iowa), Alison Chapman (University of Victoria), Jon Mee (University of York) and Mike Sanders (University of Manchester).
