Research title: Infrastructures of Solidarity: the spatial politics of the left in the 1970s and 1980s in Britain

Research Summary

Thesis title: Infrastructures of solidarity: the spatial politics of the left in 1970s and 1980s Britain

This research examines different left-wing spaces in Britain during the 1970s and 1980s, such as radical and LGBT+ bookshops, women's centres, unemployed workers' centres, and social clubs. I consider the role of these spaces in building solidarity within and across various political movements across the left in this period. These sites were crucial within broader networks of solidarity and care, and I contend that this spatial focus therefore illuminates existing histories of political struggle over the 70s and 80s. I also foreground the use of oral history testimony in this work, proposing that this is a uniquely rich and productive methodology for uncovering the emotionality and spatiality of these historical narratives.
