European Song and Political Protest
The City of Warwick, Friends Meeting House
The workshop was followed by a concert of music and song in the Courthouse, Warwick 16.00 - 17.30
The European Song and Political Protest event was an opportunity to discuss the place of music and song in the emergence of popular forms of protest - both radical and reactive in the thirty five years after Napoleon's final defeat at Waterloo.
The workshop combined a series of short papers illustrating the value that music and song can bring to our understanding of the dynamics of contention and resistance and exploring their significance in the wider European arena.
