The voices that are represented in history are the voices of the elites. How can we restore lost voices and open up new perspectives on history?
Guest is Carolyn Steedman, Professor Emerita at the Department of History at the University of Warwick, UK, who recently gave a talk at the Creating the City conference in Malmö. Carolyn Steedman has focused much of her research on histories of the working class in the city and of groups and individuals who are not easily contained in standard categories of inquiry. Host is Magnus Nilsson, Professor of comparative literature specializing in working-class literature.
