Professor Rohan McWilliam of Anglia Ruskin University
‘Roosevelt and the New Deal’
Professor McWilliam is Director of the Labour History Research Unit at Anglia Ruskin University. His main areas of interest include the modern social and cultural history of Britain and the United States, especially in regards to labour movements and the political left. He has published many papers on diverse subjects such as Bohemian London and Alice in Wonderland and has edited a book entitled ‘Labour and the Left in the 1980s’. Professor McWilliam will discuss the background, progress and consequences of one of the most far-reaching economic and social programmes of US history. At a time when politicians of all backgrounds regularly call for a ‘Green new deal’ it is more important than ever to understand the original one.
