Launch of “The People’s Voice” website

The People’s Voice website was launched on 15 February 2018.  Created by staff at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde and funded by the Carnegie Trust, it contains over 1000 poems, song recordings, essays and school resources.

This project unearths the wealth of political poetry found in the Scottish popular press, and uses its to analyse the roles that poetry and song played in the extensions of the electoral franchise in 1832, 1867-8, 1884 and 1918.
