Glasgow Anarchists 1915

As people flee, disperse and travel across national borders, their ideas travel with them.

In this talk, Dr Lichtenstein will explore the early days of anarchism in Scotland and its wider transnational connections. The Spirit of Revolt Archives of dissent, which collects mainly Clydeside Anarchism but includes the T/Sor/5 Bratach Dubh - papers in other languages was an invaluable resource for this talk.

Dr Aileen Lichtenstein is a Lecturer in European History at the University of Stirling. Her main areas of interest are transnational revolutions and radical social movements in the 19th and 20th century, usually with a focus on Germany.
