As previously announced, the Reluctant Internationalists are organising a series of walking tours around London showcasing the city as the home of international projects and presenting London as a magnet for international collaboration and a laboratory of ideas. The third of these walking tours will explore the history of communism in London and will be led by Dr Ana Antic and Dr Johanna Conterio.
The Communist London tour will examine how London was far more important than Moscow in the international socialist and communist movement before 1917. The tour will take participants through the history of international socialist and communist activism in London from the second half of the 19th century to 1917, and show that London served as a temporary home for the leading activists, ideologues and intellectuals of the movement. This walk through Soho will also highlight the links between London and continental Europe in this network of communist, socialist and Bolshevik internationalism.
The walk will start at 3.00pm on Friday 25th November 2016 from outside Queen’s Theatre, 51 Shaftesbury Ave, London W1D 6BA. The tour is open to all and is free to attend.
