Picturing Poverty: London past and present
Speaker(s): Sue Donnelly, Mishka Henner; Professor Gillian Rose; Dr Mike Seaborne
Recorded on 27 May 2009 in New Theatre, East Building.
From Charles Booth's 19th century maps and early photographs of East End tenements, to rich-poor divides in Hackney, this discussion will consider old and new ways of seeing poverty - understanding the underlying political processes that serve to reproduce and reduce it. Sue Donnelly is head of Archives at LSE. Mishka Henner is a photographic artist. Gillian Rose is professor of cultural geography at the Open University. Mike Seaborne is senior curator of photographs at the Museum of London.
