Tent Talk | Making Child Labour History

SATURDAY 15 June | 1.00pm | The Big Top


Professor of Economic History at Oxford, Jane Humphries wrote the book on child labour in Victorian Britain. Her Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution has since been made into a BBC4 documentary, The Children Who Built Victorian Britain. More than a century on, we have yet to relegate child labour to the history books: it continues in many parts of the world, and is closer than we might think. Come hear a discussion between Jane and an expert on contemporary child labour and child trafficking. 45mins plus Q&A
