James Yeoman (Sheffield) ‘The Panama Papers: Transatlantic Anarchist Press Networks in the Early Twentieth Century’
March 14, 2017 @ 4:15 pm - 6:30 pmFree
James Yeoman completed his PhD at the University of Sheffield in February 2016. His thesis examined the formation of the anarchist movement in Spain, with a particular focus on grassroots publishing.
He has recently guest-edited a special edition of International Journal of Iberian Studies (29:3, 2016), which focuses on the international dimensions of Spanish anarchism. This edition includes his article ‘Salud y Anarquía desde Dowlais,’ which presents a case study of Spanish anarchist migration to South Wales in the early twentieth century.
James has spoken at leading universities across the UK and Europe, including UCL; the Royal Geographers Society (London); The International Institute of Social History (Amsterdam); Bielefeld University; and the University of Seville.
He is currently preparing his thesis for publication, and writing a chapter on the Spanish Civil War for the forthcoming Palgrave MacMillan Handbook of Anarchism.
James has also been employed as an associate tutor at the Department of History since 2011.
