Literature and the Welfare State in Post-War Britain

Literature and the Welfare State in Post-War Britain

Date
29/06/2016
Description
How does literature register Britain's post-war welfare capitalism? What critiques of British state welfare have been put forward by writers across genres in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries? Can these broad questions be systematised into a coherent idea of 'Welfare State Literature'? Centred on an invited lecture from Professor Michael Gardiner on Thatcher and the post-war consensus, this half-day workshop is dedicated to beginning a conversation on British Welfare State culture. Everyone is welcome to attend.
