  13. Seminar 5: Making citizens: Voluntary organisations for young people 1 item
    1. Key questions for discussion in the seminar:

      • How successful were women's and/or youth voluntary organisations in 'making citizens' in twentieth-century Britain?
      • How far were concepts of citizenship explicit in the work of these organisations?
      • In what ways, and why, did mainstream voluntary organisations engage their membership with wider social and political issues?

      This session examines mainstream, mass participation voluntary organisations twentieth-century Britain, with a special emphasis on groups aimed at young people and women. Recent historical work by Cait Beaumont has argued for the significant impact of mainstream (and often small 'c' conservative) women's voluntary organisations including The Mothers' Union, the Catholic Women's League, the National Federation of Women's Institutes, the National Union of Townswomen's Guilds and the National Council of Women on wider society. Meanwhile voluntary youth organisations such as the Girl Guides and Boy Scouts, created in response to a perceived idea of youth as a problematic group, have also been conceptualised as important training grounds for citizenship and important spaces in the shaping of personal identities. We seek to reexamine the role of these associations, and examine the issues, debates, causes and campaigns that these groups engaged with in the mid-twentieth century.

      You will divide into groups this week, examining either the women's or youth sectors. You will need to divide up the reading amongst yourselves – trying to make sure that you each read at least one primary and one secondary source.

      Please come prepared to prepare a pop-up visual display and to present this orally to the rest of the class. You will have time in the seminar to discuss and prepare the display and group presentation. I will bring additional objects and primary sources to the class for you to select, discuss and display, but you may wish to bring additional items or images yourself.

  19. Seminar 6: Volunteering, citizenship and politics 1 item
      • In what ways, and why, have political parties and governments taken an interest in volunteering after the Second World War?
      • How far was there a youth 'volunteer boom' in the 1960s?

      • Who volunteers, and how have volunteers' motivations changed over time?

         

      Recent historical work has begun to pay more attention to volunteering as a significant phenomenon. Research has focused on the ways in which voluntary service has been promoted as a constructive use of leisure time for different groups of people, particularly young people, and the connections between volunteering, citizenship and duty. We interrogate the reasons behind government support for volunteering and examine data from a number of surveys and studies on volunteering in Britain which were conducted over the period 1947-1982.

  22. Seminar 7. Youth, aid and development in the era of cold war and decolonisation 1 item
      • In what ways did the legacy of Britain's imperial past shape voluntary humanitarian aid after 1945?

      • Why was there such a specific focus on the role of youth in humanitarian aid and development activities?

      • How can we reconcile attempts to engage the public in overseas aid with wider trends of professionalisation and the 'rise of the expert'?

         

      This seminar will explore British involvement in humanitarian causes after the Second World War. We start with a brief overview of British engagement with earlier overseas fundraising campaigns such as Indian famine relief in the nineteenth century. Drawing on new research, we will explore how British people from school children to students and pensioners to police officers became involved in high profile global campaigns such the 'Freedom from Hunger Campaign', and pioneered new organisations such as Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO). In so doing it will explore the rise of a humanitarian aid 'industry' and examine how imperial legacies shaped British understandings of development.

  25. Seminar 8: The rediscovery of poverty: New campaigning organisations from the 1960s to the 1980s 1 item
      • What factors lay behind the rise of a 'poverty lobby' in the 1960s?

      • What tactics characterised the work of the poverty lobby?

      • What similarities / differences were there between this group, and other campaigning voluntary organisations that emerged in the 1960s?

         

      This session looks at a more politicised understanding of voluntary service which emerged during the 1960s as a result of a 'rediscovery' that poverty remained a persistent problem in Britain, despite the expansion of the welfare state since 1945. It will examine the formation of a range of new campaigning organisations to tackle the causes of poverty and homelessness including the Child Poverty Action Group and Shelter. The session sets these organisations in the broader context of social and economic change in the 1960s, as well as highlighting the key role of youth and students in ensuring these organisations' establishment and longevity.

  29. Seminar 9: Forging the voluntary sector: Professionalisation, innovation and social action 1 item
    1. Key questions for discussion in the seminar:

       

      • What processes of innovation and professionalisation shaped the UK voluntary sector after the 1960s?

      • What was it like to work or volunteer for a new voluntary organisation in the 1960s and 1970s?

      • How did this 'politics of expertise' shape British politics?

      • How and when was the UK 'voluntary sector' created?

       

      Building on week 8's class, this session will further explore processes of innovation and professionalisation that shaped the UK voluntary sector after the 1960s. There is an ongoing historical debate about how and when the voluntary sector was 'invented' and how far voluntary organisations/NGOs have shaped modern Britain. We approach these questions through close examination of personal accounts of founding or becoming involved in setting up a new organisation.

       

       

      This week you will also engage with one short, personal memoir from someone involved in founding or establishing a new voluntary organisation in the 1960s, taken from Helene Curtis and Mimi Sanderson, eds., The Unsung Sixties: Memoirs of Social Innovation. London: Whiting and Birch, 2004.

      • Was there a 'revolution in giving' for Ethiopia in 1984-5?

      • Did Ethiopia mark the beginnings of 'celebrity humanitarianism'?

      • How had methods of charitable fundraising changed over the twentieth century?

       

      This session will continue our examination of the British engagement with humanitarian aid into the 1980s, through a case study of famine relief in the Horn of Africa. The session will look at the decisive role of the media in generating an outpouring of public sympathy for Ethiopia in 1984/5 in the form of charitable donations and demands for international action. It will further invite students to discuss the concept of 'celebrity humanitarianism' epitomized by Bob Geldof and Band Aid and to reflect on the changing aid industry towards the end of the twentieth century.
