Readers of our blog may be interested in an event involving our former research fellow, Dr. Henry Miller (now at the University of Manchester’s History Department). During his time at the History of Parliament, he published an article in the English Historical Review on ‘Popular petitioning and the corn laws, 1833-46’. He is now expanding his research to study the culture of petitioning in Britain during the ‘long nineteenth century’ (1780-1914).
Dr. Miller is organising a symposium on ‘Transnational Cultures of Petitioning’, which will take place in Manchester on 29 and 30 June. Further details can be found here:
