Peterloo to the Pankhursts: Radicalism and Reform in the 19th Century

Steven Franklin, Royal Holloway, University of London

Improve your understanding of important milestones in political history

16th August 2019 marks the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre, a key milestone in the campaign to reform Parliament in the 19th century, and an important part of Britain’s democratic heritage and history. On this course, you will understand this event within a wider context of radicalism and reform over the 19th century.

You will first explore the birth of modern democratic ideas and responses to the American and French revolutions in the 18th century. You will end the course by examining the campaign for universal men’s and women’s suffrage in the early years of the 20th century.

This course is for anyone with an interest in political and social history, including the history of British Parliament, trade unionism and the labour movement.
