This year’s  ‘Newport Chartist Convention‘ is being held at the City Campus of the University at Newport from 11am to 3pm

Key note speaker: Professor Malcolm Chase (Leeds University)  “Welsh Chartism: Looking beyond November 1839″

Malcolm Chase is the leading Chartist historian in the UK today – author of ‘Chartism: a new history” (2007)

In this lecture, Professor Chase will draw upon his recent Llafur article (2010) “Rethinking Welsh Chartism” and place the Rising at Newport in 1839 into a  broader context, considering not only the English risings that didn’t happen, but also the preceding 1837-38 Canadian Rebellions.

Buffet lunch will be provided – so booking is required please

This event is sponsored by the University of Wales, Newport and its South Wales Centre for Historical and Interdisciplinary Research
