Property and Poverty: Perspectives on the Nineteenth-Century Social Question

Organised by Thomas Hopkins (University of Helsinki).

This working group will investigate the rise of the nineteenth-century ‘Social Question’ and its decisive impact on European political, social and economic thought.  The aim is to produce new perspectives on the conceptual dislocation produced by the transformative social changes of the age of industrialisation.
