Chartism: the Press and the First Opium War
Прикладная и междисциплинарная история
The purpose of this paper is to place the concept of the bourgeois public sphere and revisionist concepts of the public sphere in historical context of the Chartist movement. This will demonstrate how the Chartists encouraged and facilitated a growth in working-class public spheres through the technique of oratory reporting and the culture of collectively reading newspapers. These concepts will lead us to consider the extend in which Chartist leaders used working-class public spheres as an instrument to achieve the People's Charter. This notion is explored in the Chartist press' attitudes towards the First Opium War, revealing a unique approach that perpetually voice the concerns for the people of China, whilst at the same time articulate the social experiences of the British working-class.
