Chartism Day 2022: a truly enjoyable day

Chartism Day returned in 2022, following an enforced break, to honour and celebrate the life of Professor Malcolm Chase, great scholar of Chartism, who died in February 2020. 

The event took place on Saturday 19 March at the University of Leeds, where Malcolm spent much of his career, and attracted some 70 attendees - ranging from academic historians, to family historians and those who are simply interested in the history of Chartism.

A full report of this truly enjoyable and interesting day can be found on the website of the Society for the Study of Labour History, which has run the event for nearly a quarter of a century and which co-sponsored this year's event with the Social History Society.

Read the report.
