Lecture & Buffet - 'How Sheffield became a cosmopolitan City'
Thursday 30th April 2020, 7pm
Our speaker, David Price, will draw on the research which he carried out for his book "Welcome to Sheffield : A Migration History" which was recently published in association with City of Sanctuary Sheffield.
Right up to 1945, Sheffield was a very English city, even if there were already several significant immigrants groups. Since 1945, immigrants have moved into the city from many different countries, and by 2011 20% of the population was of ethnic minority heritage and 120 different languages were recorded in Sheffield schools.
David will discuss how well Sheffield has coped with this huge change in its character and what the implications are for the future.
David Price studied history at St John's College, Cambridge, in the 1950s. Subsequently, he served in the Ministry of Labour and its successor Departments. Since his retirement, he has returned to history, writing a history of the public employment service and a book on Sheffield radicals - Sheffield Troublemakers (2008).
The venue is Whirlowbrook Hall and we will have a buffet beforehand.
