About this book

This book offers the first systematic study of the multiple and contested ways in which protest is remembered. Drawing on work in social and cultural history, cultural and historical geography, psychology, anthropology, critical heritage studies, and memory studies, Remembering Protest focuses on the dynamic and lived nature of past protests, asking how conflicted communities and individuals made sense of and mobilized protest past in forging the future. Written by several of the leading historians and historical geographers of protest in early modern and modern Britain, the chapters span the period from 1500 to c.1850 while also speaking to the politics of past protests in the present. In so doing, it also offers the first showcase of the variety of approaches that comprises the vibrant and intellectually fecund ‘new protest history’. Empirically rich but conceptually sophisticated, this book will appeal to those with an interest in protest history, and early modern and modern British history, and historical geography more generally.

Reviews

“This volume reinvigorates the historiography of popular protest by focusing on hitherto neglected questions about the roles of memory, materiality and landscape in shaping and reflecting traditions of insubordination. The essays cohere as a thorough, telling and persuasive collection, which will be hugely influential as the next generation of scholars rethink the nature and significance of dissident subcultures in the English past.” (Steve Hindle, W.M. Keck Foundation Director of Research, The Huntington Library, USA)
