Archives Tour - Protest and Campaigning Collections
Thursday 8 February 2018
18.30 - 19.30

Did you know Bishopsgate Institute holds the archives of the two biggest demonstrations in British history?

This tour will introduce you to numerous campaigners and organisations whose collections we hold from radicals of the 1790s to placards from the London Women’s March in 2017.

Led by Stefan Dickers, the Library and Archives Manager at Bishopsgate Institute who looks after its extensive collection of books, pamphlets, maps, photographs and oral histories on London history, as well as the labour movement, protest, atheism, the co-op and LGBT history. He is passionate about history, the Institute and its historic collections (along with West Ham United) and will talk about them all at length to anyone who will listen. He started as the archivist at Bishopsgate Institute in 2005 and has previously worked at the London School of Economics and Senate House Library. He is also Archives and Resources Secretary of the Society for the Study of Labour History. Follow @stefdickers.

**Due to unforeseen circumstances, this course has been cancelled.**
