Featuring artists David Jacques and Patricia Mackinnon-Day (also an LJMU academic) this panel is led by Patricia’s colleague and fellow academic Deaglan O Donghaile.
Please note: The panel date will be Thurs 25 Oct – not Wed 24 Oct – as outlined in the #LIF2018 brochure and some listings. We are extremely sorry for any confusion.
The panel will consider Robert Tressell’s work The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, lauded internationally as a seminal text for socialists. Tressell (aka Robert Croker (and, occasionally, by his mother’s maiden name Noonan); b.1870, Dublin; d. 1911, Liverpool) had various professions and aspirations, but this book reveals him as a radical emigre. Join the speakers to find out more.
The panel takes place on the set of Kitty, a play which also looks at social welfare in the 1800s. Why not book both? Bookers may also be interested in The James Connolly Reader event on Tues 23 Oct 2018.
This event is held in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University
