Morris Brodie - student profile

MORRIS BRODIE

I aMorris Brodie - profile photom currently in the final year of my PhD at Queen’s. My thesis is entitled ‘Transatlantic Anarchism during the Spanish Civil War and Revolution, 1936-1939’. I look at anarchists from Britain, Ireland and the United States who mobilised following the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in July 1936, including those who came to Spain to fight for the Republic as well as those who remained behind to mobilise support for their overseas comrades. I use a transnational lens to examine the solidarities and conflicts between transatlantic and Spanish anarchism. My wider interests include twentieth century labour history, particularly during revolutionary periods. More broadly, I have taught classes on contemporary British history and interwar European history.
