2 February Radical Archives

Iain Boal and Riley Linebaugh

A discussion on 'radical archives' with two examples at the heart: The Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan and May Day Rooms in London. Both arose during moments of great economic and political crisis, though 80 years apart, by people concerned with history’s ability to link past and present struggle who were not otherwise concerned with archives.
