Happy Birthday Mr. Engels!

Happy Birthday Mr. Engels

Monday 29 November, 6.00 pm

Friedrich Engels celebrated his 190th birthday on 28 November, 2010, and his
work in philosophy and political theory continue to be widely read and
highly influential. Manchester served as inspiration for some of Engels’
writings on child labour, unsanitary conditions and working class life in
the 19th century. In this panel discussion, we examined how the city
is reflected in Engel’s work and how his Mancunian insights continue to
be relevant in the 21st century.

The session was hosted by Dr. Andy Karvonen.
