Petitioning in the Long Nineteenth Century - A Workshop

This workshop is part of the Leverhulme-funded project "Re-thinking petitions, parliament and people in the long nineteenth century" headed by Richard Huzzey and Henry Miller of Durham University. Petitions were a key method of ordinary (and not so ordinary!) people communicating with Parliament in this period but are an under-utilised resource. This workshop aims to discuss the potential of using parliamentary petitions for research on a wide range of topics associated with Britain, her Empire and foreign affairs; the practical and methodological problems they pose; and examples of existing research which makes use of petitions.
