British Working-Class Culture: A Varied Perspective--the People, the Activists, and the Represenatives

The study will seek to establish the nature of British working-class concepts in relation to class consciousness, utopianism, and aesthetic values during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The research will be focused primarily in the area of newspapers and journals with a special concentration on such items as first-hand narratives and classified advertisements. Study will explore utopianism and the social context of the 1830's and 1840's as well as working-class songs and slogans of this period. An attempt will be made to concentrate on separate period- -the post-Napoleonic War years, the 1840's and 1860's, and the early 20th century.
