History Workshop Journal & Associated


Copies of the early issues of History Workshop: A Journal of Socialist Historians, donated by Anna Davin of the founding editorial collective. The history workshop movement emerged in the ferment of the 1960s, animated, according to its Ruskin-based presiding spirit Raphael Samuel, by the “the belief that history is or ought to be a collaborative enterprise, one in which the researcher, the archivist, the curator and the teacher, the ‘do-it-yourself’ enthusiast and the local historian, the family history societies and the individual archaeologist, should all be regarded as equally engaged.” (History Workshop: A Collecteana, 1967-1991, Documents, Memoirs, Critique and cumulative index to History Workshop Journal. Ruskin College. pp. 1V.) A brief history of the movement can be found at: http://www.historyworkshop.org.uk/the-history-of-history-workshop/, including a bibliography.
