Webinar: European migrants in 19th-century Britain

Partnership webinar from the Historical Association and British Library

Wednesday 3 July, 4pm

Get fresh ideas for teaching about European migrants in Britain from 1780–1914, using brand new resources from the British Library.

This free partnership CPD session offers practical ideas for teaching migration history, drawing on a rich collection of sources – including newspapers, maps and photographs. Learn more about how migrants from Europe contributed to social and economic activity in 19th-century Britain with a short talk by migration historian Panikos Panayi, and hear from Abdul Mohamud and Robin Whitburn of Justice to History about a fascinating new historical enquiry which they have developed using these British Library sources. Resources will be shared that cover Irish migrants, German and Italian migrants, and Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe.
