The Fabian Society was founded in 1884 and throughout it’s long history has been at the heart of debate on the left of British politics.
As part of our new website, we’re hoping to feature some of the history of the Fabians and assess the contribution that great Fabians like George Bernard Shaw, the Webbs, H.G Wells, Tony Crosland and many other made to British life.
You can also visit the LSE Fabian Society Archive to read any of the hundreds of Fabian pamphlets published in the last 120 years.
But what we need your help. We’re looking for contributors and historians who are interested in the history of the Society to contribute articles and features about Fabian ideas from the past and how they’ve influenced politics today. Perhaps we’ve missed a Famous Fabian that you think should be included, or you think a Fabian publication from the 1920s can inform how we think about politics today.
If you’d like to get involved in any of our history work, please contact Richard Speight on [email protected].
