The Mary Quaile Club was set up in December 2013. The aim of the Club is to hold regular discussions on working class history and its links with contemporary political issues facing working people in Tory Britain.
The founders of the Club feel that conferences and seminars on working class history are often too academic in nature and are failing to engage with a wider non-academic audience. We believe there is a new generation of political activists campaigning on issues such as the bedroom tax, the privatisation of the NHS, zero hours contacts, fracking, the slashing of welfare benefits etc who would engage with discussions on history and politics, but who are not being reached at present.
We welcome suggestions on future topics for discussion
