The Municipal Franchise and the Fight for Urban Working-Class Citizenship in Comparative Perspective, 1890-1920 (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The Municipal Franchise and the Fight for Urban Working-Class Citizenship in Comparative Perspective, 1890-1920
Author: Shelton Stromquist
Abstract: The paper was presented at the Annual national conference of the Labor and Working-Class History Association in Washington, D.C. The paper, drawn from parts of several chapters in my book manuscript, examined the concept of "urban citizenship" and the struggle to define the boundaries of working-class participation in municipal civic life during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Much of the agitation centered around the highly restrictive municipal franchise that limited access to the ballot and a significant political voice around critical issues of everyday life in cities. The paper examined the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany and the U.S. The end of WWI produced significant expansion of suffrage but also renewed efforts by elites to limit "home rule" as an alternate method of disfranchisement.
