History From Below networking and new visions of how to research and communicate radical history

Transcription and slides from a multimedia talk by Roger Ball and Peter Box at Manchester Metropolitan University, 11 May, 2015

This talk covers:

  • The recent history of movements studying History From Below: History Workshop Movement (UK), Dig Where You Stand (Sweden) and ‘Geschichtswerkstätten’ (Germany)
  • The growth, diversity of approaches and activities in the current international History From Below network
  • How ideologies frame ‘radical history’ and affect how and where we look when we undertake research: ‘Rebellion within the rebellion’, formal and informal struggle, outcomes, sources and evidence, informal modes of organisation, subterranean oral histories, family and community history, social movements and dispersed researchers
  • Levelling and commoning: the practice of radical history and history from below
