Engels, the Burns Family and the Manchester Irish

Event location: WCML

Date: 9th Nov 2016

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

Talk by Mervyn Busteed, British Association for Irish Studies.

Mervyn will discuss Engels's personal background in both Germany and Manchester, his reliance on the work of earlier sanitary reformers and help from Mary Burns for the material on the Manchester Irish in his classic work on the condition of the working class in England, and the possible influence of the Burns family on the evolution of his thinking about Irish affairs.
