Thomas Spence has been recognised as the most important socialist thinker of the 1790s. He was also a strong satirist of aristocracy and of land-holders generally. This talk will consider Spence as a satirist and utopian writer, and will conclude by considering parallels between the thought and writing of Spence and of William Morris a century later.
Frank Palmeri is Professor of English at the University of Miami.
This talk is part of the autumn Invisible Histories series, and will be live-streamed; please check www.wcml.org.uk/events re sign-up details and re attending the talk in person.
