It is two years now since our Pendle Radicals team embarked on an enquiry into the singular life and work of the extraordinary Ethel Carnie Holdsworth. Now we can tell you about two exciting developments in swift succession, which give a wonderful new impetus to our ongoing research into Ethel.
Read about the fully funded collaborative doctorate, now being advertised, the PhD is entitled ‘Songs of a Factory Girl: Ethel Carnie Holdsworth and radical working-class women’s writing’.
Also find out about our partnership with the BBC Novels project, Lancashire Library Service and Libraries Connected (a national body that aims to maximise the offer from libraries), on creating a podcast about Ethel.
You can read about both in the latest blog on the Radicals’ Rebel Pen Club site.
