Tony Crowley gave a keynote on the topic ‘Keywords, Then and Now’ and Ruth Beale showed her film of ‘Performing Keywords’.


Over the last decade, we have supported or run a range of conferences, symposia and seminars concerned with education, culture, the media, drama, and the future of socialism. If you consider an event you are organising to be consistent with the work of the Society, you may apply for us to sponsor your event. Email the Treasurer, Tony Crowley, setting out details of the event, how it relates to the aims of the Society, and what the sponsorship would help you do.
